But unlike Manu, the happy, bustling family does not need her love and affection. September is that ambivalent mood, between endings and beginnings, a struggle to find meaning and happiness out of life's ordinariness.

- The place mats as well?

- Yes.

Thank you.

Can you cover me?

I want to check Manu.

- Thank you.

- Any time.


While they were walking

through the dense forest

he made sure to leave a trail.

So he threw the peas,

he had kept inside his pockets,

to be sure he could find his way back

to his little house.

Come on Manu, let's go!

Come on Manu. Hurry up.

Let's eat!

Go on, eat.

Come on!


Come here, Manu!

Manu, come here!

Manu, come here!

- Catch it!

- Catch it!

- Hi, Anna!

- Shouldn't you keep him on the leash?

You're right.

Bring him over to play some time.

Are you coming back?

It's nice here.

- Beautiful house. I like it.

- I know, we are lucky.

And up to our necks in debt.

Come on kids.

Bye, Manu, bye.

Come on, Manu.

So you're sociable, you traitor?

There is no way, they could stand you.

They wouldn't look after you like I do.

You wouldn't last even a month.

6... 2-98-9-.


Hi, it's me Anna.

I already called you yesterday,

didn't I?

When? No, I didn't see it.

Really? No, it's not cold at all.

I'm fine.

The same as ever.

Home, work.

Maria, if you're not coming this summer,

why don't you come for Easter?

It's only a few days,

but it's worth it, no?

I know, it's expensive,

but if you book early.

Come. You and the kids.

Think about it. Nick can come later.

Maria, sometimes you seem so distant.

Okay, okay.

Call me when you have time.

Me too.

Manu! Manu!

- Hi.

- Hi.

Nelly, Stephanos, come on, we'll be late.

Get in!

You are hungry.

Aren't you, Manu?


Lie down, let's have a chat.

That's better.

That's better, relax.

Relax, Manu.

It's a bit more expensive,

but much better.

It's expensive.

Come on Stathis, do me a favour.

- You're becoming like your father.

- Come on, let's go.

Hurry up, let's go!

We're going, kids!

This one is for school as well.

Please, just choose one.

Please put it back!

- You want cookies?

- Yes.

- Here, this is for school.

- I want this one.

- Please, please!

- These are much healthier.

Nelly, come here, look.

Please! I want these but with chocolate.

- Let's go!

- Wait, wait. Stop, time out.

- Can I get some chewing gum?

- Yes, you can.

- I also like this one.

- Can I have chewing gum too? Yes?

- Hello.

- Hello.


Hi! I didn't see you,

have you been here long?

Never mind, I saw you.

- Hi Anna, how are you?

- Fine. Well, shopping.

I'm going to get the car.

You'll stay here

and help Mama, all right?

I'm going with Papa.

Will you bring your dog some time,

so we can play?

I'll bring him.

- Is this yours?

- This one? Yes, it's mine.

See you.




Hey Manu,

what's wrong with you?

Please go to sleep.


Manu, what is it?

I have to get up early.


What do you want, Manu?

You want us to go to the beach?

Summer is near.

You thought it'd never come?

Do you want to go for a swim?

How about this Sunday?

Come on.

Lie down now, sleep, Manu, sleep.

Oh shit! I'm late again.

Manu. What's the matter?

Manu, get up!

I'm leaving. I'm late.


What's wrong, Manu?

Still in the same place?

Are you asleep?

Why aren't you getting up, Manu?

Don't you want to go for a walk?

Don't you want to go for a walk?

Come on, let's go for a walk.

Let's go for a walk!

- What's wrong with him?

- The dog has cardiomyopathy.

- He'll have to stay the night.

- Is it serious?

Speak to the vet tomorrow.

Don't worry,

we'll call if anything happens.

- Can I see him?

- You'd better come in the morning.


Manu is dead.

Everything will be all right.

You'll see.
