Description

Your dog getting loose on a walk is already a distressing situation, but imagine if it were to trigger an international incident. Well, that’s exactly what happens to Yiannis, when just a few days before he’s set to leave his home in Cyprus and get on a plane for a new life, his beloved canine companion, Jimi, gets caught in the no man’s land that separates “Greek South” and “Turkish North.” With no legal recourse, he enlists the help of a ragtag crew, including a shady smuggler, a bitter enemy, and an old flame, to get Jimi back. Set against a complex geopolitical situation, this charming comedy mixes a heartfelt ode to man's best friend with exciting prison break intrigue, and it deservedly went home as Top Dog at the Tribeca Film Festival, winning Best Narrative International Feature.
