Γαλάζιο Φόρεμα (True Blue) (2005)

The fifties. A widow is raising her three children but has a soft spot for her only son Giorgos. The first signs of the son’s ‘peculiarity’ appear early on. The father does not like the behavior of the son but dies soon. His passion for dancing leads him to Paris to work as a dancer in some cheap gay club and his passions to bisexual relationships which involve a so called marriage to some girl whom he pays some money. His relationship to the girl is not very clear because he sleeps with her and also with other men at the same time. Time moves on and we are in eighties. Giorgos has failed big time as an artist and is earning nothing. He moves back with his mother, doesn't do any work, expects his mother to take care of him and his random partners that he keeps bringing home. His sisters try to talk him out of this but to no avail. They all fight like cats and dogs. Further deterioration of his relationship with his mother lead him to extreme decisions: streetwalking on Syngrou Avenue, working as a dancer in a transvestite club, prison, a sex change operation. His mother has a hard time keeping up with the changes in his life. The happiness he dreams of does not come. The end is tragically liberating.

Δεκαετία του 50. Mια χήρα μάνα μεγαλώνει τα τρία παιδιά της έχοντας ιδιαίτερη αδυναμία στο μοναχογιό της. Τα πρώτα σημάδια ιδιαιτερότητας του γιου εμφανίζονται νωρίς: κόντρα με την οικογένεια, ρήξη με τα κοινωνικά πρότυπα, φιλίες με το ίδιο φύλο. Το πάθος του για το χορό τον οδηγεί στο Παρίσι και τα πάθη του σε αμφίφυλες σχέσεις.Δεκαετία του 80. H απογοητευτική επιστροφή στην Ελλάδα, η καλλιτεχνική του αποτυχία και η όξυνση των σχέσεών του με τη μητέρα του τον οδηγούν σε ακραίες αποφάσεις: πεζοδρόμιο στη Συγγρού, χορευτής σε καμπαρέ με τραβεστί, φυλακή, αλλαγή φύλου.
Η μάνα του αδυνατεί να ακολουθήσει τις αλλαγές του.Δεκαετία του 90. H ευτυχία που ονειρεύεται δεν έρχεται. Το τέλος τραγικά λυτρωτικό.
