Brief synopsis in English: New dreams come at a cost. Spiros is one of the many new migrants from Greece seeking a better life in Australia. But as he soon realizes, new dreams come at a cost. What is it that makes us Greek? Is it in the blood? No, it’s gotta be deeper than that… An all-too common Greek migrant story, Dream of a Shadow follows in the footsteps of Spiros – a man running from himself and hoping for a clean break in Australia. He leaves his family, he leaves his girlfriend and the pressure to get married, and he leaves the problems of a struggling country. When Spiros arrives in Melbourne, all looks to be going well for him. He meets a new love, he makes headlines as a hero, and he takes on a new cause in a global political movement to help rebuild Greece. All his needs appear to be fully covered until he finds a revolver pointing at his head. What better way to clear his thoughts?
