Feature documentary by Håvard Bustnes. World premiere at IDFA 2017

After the detainment of several Golden Dawn MPs, we follow their family members, including the Party leader Nikos Michaloliakos’ daughter Ourania, through the trial proceedings and the chaotic situation in Greece, as they struggle to save their fathers, sons, and husbands from a maximum possible jail sentence of 20 years for accusations of racist violence and conspiracy of murder.

While party leaders are behind bars the women engage actively in the political work to keep Golden Dawn alive. But will the neo-Nazi party survive its lack of leadership as prosecutors attempt to put an end to Golden Dawn, or will the hype surrounding the court case generate even more public support for the party?” – DR Sales
