The film follows an American couple who travel to Greece to renew their wedding vows, celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary. The Rom-Com takes off when their soap opera star son follows them and falls for a Greek stage actress, learning how to truly love and act. Greek film director Nick Gaitatjis (Without Borders) is set to direct and produce.
“A filmmaker’s location wish list is an exotic one, and Greece is high on the list,” says Gaitatjis. “When the Greek government announced a 35% tax incentive a few years back, it got me excited to return with a project I am passionate about. The natural beauty of the country, with its pristine waters and beaches, lush landscapes, historical sites and landmarks, radiant light, and rich culture all lends themselves to elevate the production value of our film. Through the lenses of our cameras, I’m looking forward to complementing our story with the beauty of my homeland and sharing it with the rest of the world.”
