Swing Away

Synopsis: Following a meltdown on tour that results in her suspension, professional golfer Zoe Papadopoulos travels to her grandparents' village in Rhodes, Greece, to escape the harsh spotlight of the international sports world. Between baking bread and eating baklava, she meets and mentors a ten-year-old girl who is determined - against all odds - to become the next golf sensation. Along the way, Zoe rediscovers her Greek heritage, her love of the game, and the hidden strength within herself as she inspires the townspeople in an epic showdown against a greedy American developer who threatens the course and the town.

but golf is a sport.

- We have missed our little Zoe.

It was been too many years

since your last visit.

I hope you can have a long

stay with us this time.

- Oh, I can stay a week,

10 days at the most.

A week? What kind of visit is this?

Stop it.

- What your Pappous means

is it's wonderful to see you

and we will enjoy whatever

time we have together.

- Hey!


You need to be more safer.

Golf is played in a green grass.

Not the sea where you can

make people dead.


You speak Greek?

- I do, but I think you don't.

- Why aren't you

playing on a golf course

like a normal person?

- I'm not allowed to play there.

- Probably 'cause

you're a hazard.

- No, I know how to play,

better than anyone

in this village.

- Oh, really, and who

taught you the game?

You know, you really

should be using a wedge.


A skip shot.


- Father.


- Excuse me, Marcos, a moment.

- You remember my famous

granddaughter from America?

- Of course I do.

- We have been following

your career somewhat, Zoe,

nice to meet you.

- Nice to meet you, too.

- Zoe, father Anthony

also knows the golf.

- Hardly.

I spent some time in America

and some of my friends

there are big golfers,

not pros like you, of course.

- Zoe is on her way to play

a pro tournament in Dubai.

- So, your suspension was a

short one, that is a good news.

- Suspension?

Tell me of this suspension.

- I meant to tell you about

all of this earlier, Yia Yia.

I'm really sorry, I needed

to clear my head first.

- Clear your head of

what, what trouble?

- What is going on?

- Zoe was suspended.

- Okay, how do I

say this in Greek?


I lose game.

I go crazy.


Then I make myself the ass.

I wanted to see my family...

because I feel too bad.

Sit down, sit down.
