Seventh Elephant, The
Abandoning the pressures of Athens, a young man flees the city, trying to escape from drink and a number of failed relationships. Clutching his vodka and his memories, he seeks refuge on an island in the Cyclades. There by chance he meets a young woman who reactivates love’s vocabulary. His survival instinct faintly reappears through the distorting mirror of alcohol. Yet the craving is an irresistible, clever adversary that shows no mercy. He is drawn by his love to places that affect his emotional world ever more forcefully.
Moving from Paris and Munich to London and a mountain village in central Greece, the battle grows tougher. The more merciless it becomes, the clearer it is that the greatest magic is in fact to be found in reality.
