It’s 2008. George, a single 38-year-old male nurse and a wannabe dancer, works at the local public hospital. His whole family works there…kind of. His mother was the assistant cook but left on early retirement faking disability. She is still in a wheelchair although she can walk. His sister, the hospital’s receptionist, a mother of six, is on her 12th consecutive year of maternity leave. And, his father is dead and buried in the back yard. He was the hospital’s gate guard. One day, he suffered a stroke and died. The gate bar was left open so no one noticed that he never returned.  His wife never reported him dead in order to keep collecting his full pension. This makes George furious. He wants a proper funeral for his father. And in contrast to his mother and his sister, he cannot stand being a public servant.

George is very close to his cat who’s always watching out for him – something George is not aware of. Fiki Fiki, is his “guardian cat angel”. The day George is fired from the hospital, due to government cutdowns on personnel, the cat gifts his “7 souls” to George.  It saves him from a dangerous fall, a car accident, a hate crime, and eventually his job. It makes a proper burial possible for his father. The cat’s last “life” is spent finding true love for George.

This is a story about Greek public sector, fatherhood, dilemmas on whether to live life fully or settle for less and moving forward.

The cat's idea is brilliant but it's hard to imagine it filmed?(or related to Syros) Nice work!

KOSTASS

NOT SO EXCITING AS I EXPECTED


astam

common storyline


DorothyBlg

mmm...the storyline had potential but it could be a little more brief and not so full in detail...regarding the ending...this plot is full of spoilers!!!!! Good luck!!!!!


vasilikimalliari7

It sounds a story with a lot of feelings!


kostas20

Commonplace, i have seen a lot like this! i wish you good luck!


Stella

Very nice plot!!


Eirini

Good luck!!!!!


anthoula

What I like the most about this script is that in the end, our -lets say- "frontman" fulfilled his dreams due to his beloved cat...!


virus666

Clever scenario, I like the plot and especially the animal's endless love to the humans -love without conditions- best of luck!!!


Gondul39

I get the feeling that I'm lost in translation.. I can make neither heads nor tails with the way the characters interact and the plot unfolds (particularly with the cat part). So George's life basically changes through the cat's sacrifice.. Where's the personal development in that? Even though the script might do for a black comedy of sorts, things are still too chaotic and it ends up not that interesting. Still, best of luck.


Maria_Ioanna

The plot is all over the place, confusing the reader


eleni_t

I love the plot and i think the characters (from what i can understand from the descriptions) can create a very interesting and funny environment. Also, the whole situation they re in can give a lot of food for thought to the viewer as it touches a dilemma we 've all had to deal with, whether in our everyday life or just in our thoughts. The idea of a cat as a guardian angel is just fantastic!!! I m definitely gonna look at my cat in a different way tonight!!


nickgeo64

Very interesting

Παράκληση προς φίλους όλων των δημιουργών: Μην αισθάνεστε την ανάγκη, ψηφίζοντας τον άνθρωπο που γνωρίζετε να καταψηφίσετε όλους τους υπόλοιπους. Τα αρνητικά σχόλια χωρίς αντίκρισμα δεν βοηθάνε κανέναν, όλοι περιμένουμε εποικοδομητική και αντικειμενική κριτική. Ούτως ή άλλως, τον τελικό λόγο θα έχει ο κύριος Bernstein.


Eva_2018

TestMe

A male nurse- dancer with a fiki fiki cat ha


evgkas

Funny plot!


check

The character of "Neoellinas" that makes everything in order to cheat on others and reaches to dilemmas is an idea that we have watched a lot of times. I hope you present it in a different and more creative way.


eleni

Great!!!!! Iwish to see it on screen!!!

deadpoolb3

Interesting but too many coincidences .. I have read something similar with "pet angels".


nancyk

So promising! And choosing to condense it to a short film is such a challenge..! Looking forward!


marsiot1234

Very interesting! Good Luck!


maria_kasteloy

I really liked it until the moment you presented the cat. The exaggeration of Greek situation in one family was a good idea. Good luck!


annoula

The Greek public sector promises a very good laugh. Can't wait to watch the movie.


foivos

Amazing!!!


TASSOSZ

Gfotou your script is touching all the aspects of life! Public Sector?? Awaiting comedy moves and actions!


rpavlou

Great work! Such a realistic presentation of modern Greek society! Conflicting moral values that bring out different aspects of human nature, but above all a universal moral law concerning the respect of the dead that strongly reminds Ancient Greek tragedy. The author may choose to turn this into a black comedy or a tragedy and still the possibilities for a masterpiece are there! Hope to see it blossom! Good luck!


XENZAC

Inspiring! Hope to see it on screen!
