Synopsis

The film “Free all around” refers to the limits that exist in the meaning of the word “freedom”.

The plot develops as two separate stories that unfold parallel to each other. At a certain moment – at the climax of the film – the two stories cross. At that moment the protagonists of each story seem unable to continue their story and find an acceptable ending. At this moment some sort of an “osmosis” happens and the protagonists of each story help the protagonists of the other story to find their desired ending in their story.

The first story – the real one – refers to a woman, Sissy, who tries to cope with all sorts of problems. She owes money, her husband is in jail and she doesn’t know why he is there, and her brother Harry asks her to finance his film about the first Greek rocket to space.

The second story – the imaginary one – is Harry’s space film that is shown visualized on screen.

After many efforts to solve her problems Sissy gets tired. She refuses to deal with those problems that are not entirely hers. So, she decides to stop.
Harry’s movie reaches to a climax and he seems unable to find an acceptable ending.

At this moment the roles of the two protagonists switch places. Sissy helps Harry to find the ending of his story and help him feel free. Harry also helps Sissy to find the solution in her own dead-ends and finally to feel free.
