An unsettling coming-of-age drama, Son of Sofia marks Elina Psykou’s second feature. It is the summer of 2004 and the Olympic Games in Athens. 11-year-old Misha arrives from Russia to live with his mother, Sofia. What he doesn’t know is that there is a father waiting for him as well. While Greece is living the Olympic dream, Misha is violently catapulted into the adult world, riding on the dark side of his favorite fairy tales.
