Set in modern day Greece, Worlds Apart is comprised of three distinct love stories between a foreigner and a Greek citizen. Each story represents a different generation falling in love during a time of socioeconomic turmoil, globalization and forced immigration. Worlds Apart follows the characters’ difficult path to love and the complications in the world around them. Nevertheless, Greece, despite its harsh realities, is still a place where truth, beauty and humanity exist. A place where love can thrive, even in the darkest hour.
