Amidst a worldwide pandemic that causes sudden amnesia, middle-aged Aris finds himself enrolled in a recovery programme designed to help unclaimed patients build new identities.
The latest patient to be admitted to the “Disturbed Memory Department” is Aris (Aris Servetalis), aka Number 14842. Aris embarks on the ‘New Identity’ programme designed to establish new memories and a new life. Paired up with Anna (Sofia Georgovassili), a fellow amnesiac, Aris duly follows a stumbling route through an accelerated second childhood. This in turn is followed by a whistle-stop adolescence. A natural descendant of the ‘Greek Weird Wave’, ‘This is a movie full of lovely and lilting moments that invite you to reflect on the value of your own painful memories, and yet precious little of it is specific enough in a way that makes it hard to forget.’ (Indiewire).
