Άξιον Σύν (Aksion Sin)
Ο πρώην μισθοφόρος "υπάλληλος" του Αφεντικού προσπαθεί να κρατήσει για τον εαυτό του τα κρύσταλλα που είχε σαν αποστολή να κλέψει. Το Αφεντικο είναι θυμωμένο και στέλνει τους άντρες (και τις γυναίκες) του να τα επιστρέψουν παση θυσία.
Aroma is an original short film being made as part of a final year university project, as well as a submission piece for upcoming film festivals.
It is the story of Tom, a man who has recently been through a traumatic experience that resulted in the death of his long term girlfriend, Zoey.
Struggling to come to terms with his grief he desperately clings to her memory anyway he can, using her perfume as a fuel to the visions and dreams he experiences.
