Synopsis

An American father, JESSE, (Ethan Hawke) is seeing off his son HANK (Seamus Davey -- Fitzpatrick) at the Kalamata Airport in Greece. Hank's returning to his mother and life in the U.S. after spending the "best summer ever" with Jesse and his family. The middle -- schooler is more composed than his fortyish father, who hovers anxiously as their separation draws near. Geography weighs heavily on Jesse. Outside the airport, he rejoins his family: CELINE (Julie Delpy) and their young twin daughters ELLA and NINA (Jennifer and Charlotte Prior). As they drive through the austerely beautiful rocky hillsides of Messinia, Jesse and Celine talk -- about living so far from Hank, about her career as an environmentalist and hopes for a new job, about the swirl of ancient and modern Greece around them. Jesse hints at wanting to move back to America from their home in Paris, but Celine has done her U.S. time -- they lived in New York for a spell -- and has no wish to return. Their long history together bubbles between them.
