LONDON MEDEA - Feature Film

Directed by Lefteris Parasyris

A modern Medea arrives in London today. She is a Kurdish soldier fleeing persecution in Turkey. Medea, 33, now an asylum-seeker working secretly as a cleaner in a gym, meets thirty year old body-builder Jason, whose real name is
Mohammed. He is the son of an Iraqi cab driver. They fall in love and Medea gives birth to their twin boys. When Sahir, Jason's father, discovers that Jason is living with a Kurd, Sahir demands that Medea be abandoned. Under pressure, Jason ultimately rejects Medea and marries his cousin Glauke. Medea is betrayed by her lover and, to revenge herself, commits an extraordinary act of aggression against those who seek to destroy her life.
