Greece nowadays. Seven different stories about seven persons who have already reached their limits and finally fall apart. Despite their seemingly obvious connection they are simultaneously connected through a common desperate action: the last phone call to the psychological support center called "life line". It's their last hope. As no one can really help them, even then, they all remain another part of the contemporary Greek tragedy.

 

During the rehearsals of the final scene, director and actors were almost arrested by police, as mistaken to be a true gang of neo - nazis demonstrating against refugees.

 

The film won the best Concept Award for Fiction Feature at the 10th London Greek Film Festival. In 2017, at the Maverick Movie Awards, Lines won the award for Best Director. It also won best feature Awards both at the Scandinavian International Film Festival in Helsinki and at the Rome Independent Prisma Awards in Italy. At the 5th Sose International Film Festival (2018) in Armenia the film won two awards for best script and best cinematography and in 2019 the film won Best Drama in Vegas Movie Awards.
