After the death of their Albanian mother, two brothers—the younger Dany, a flamboyantly gay teen, and the elder Ody (short for Odysseas), a hunky aspiring singer—set out on a road trip from Crete to Thessaloniki to find their long-lost, reputedly rich Greek father. The plan is to sort out their citizenship and then get Ody an audition for a TV singing contest (think “Greek Idol”) and a shot at stardom. The two brothers experience their share of hassles along the way, but also benefit from xenia—the warm hospitality and kindness of strangers. Dreamy fantasy sequences and classic euro disco enliven a quirky, campy romp that tackles recession, homophobia, immigration, and fraternal bonding. In Greek, Albanian, and Italian with English subtitles.
