Point of no return is a film by Alkmini Bourra produced for the ARTE Greek Theme Day, broadcast on ARTE in August 2013, spanning an entire day dedicated to Greece.
It is a film about people who have chosen to stay in Greece and fight for a better life. The more the idea of democracy crumbles, the more faith in a sense of community increases. The film shows contemporary Greece and its people, who don't want to be seen as victims but as citizens who are coping with this challenge.
