RAMONA Travel: “The Land of Kindness”, 2014

2 male – 2 female

Glikeria Basdeki

Based on “A Streetcar Named Desire”

A small town girl from northern Greece, Ramona, travels the Balkans depicted in myths, legends, heroic acts and religious fixations. She sings the tales of her land and, like another Blanche DuBois, carries the baggage of failed expectations. A visit with her sister marks the end, and at the same time the start, of this journey. She is joined by a young boy, her contribution to this new life, full of magic and kindness. A romantic journey with Greekness in the baggage and the hope of a miracle.
