    • Synopsis
    • Roza Eskenazi sang the way she lived, with passion, fire and love.
      This is the story of three young musicians from Greece, Turkey, and Israel, who embark on an exciting musical journey, to tell the story of Greece's best-known and best-loved rebetiko singer for the first time on film.
      It’s a journey that will take them from Istanbul to Thessaloniki and to Athens, following the musical trail she left behind. Most of all, it’s a journey into a world that has largely vanished, but whose sounds continue to echo throughout the Mediterranean Basin.
