Synopsis

Rural Cyprus, 1925. Despo is recently married, heavily pregnant and deeply afraid. The twelve days of Christmas are beginning - the time when, according to local folklore, creatures known as kalikantzari come up from Hell to wreak havoc. Meanwhile, her husband Loukas has troubles of his own. Struggling with dreams and desires he doesn't understand, he finds himself irresistibly drawn to an Englishman, a newcomer to the island.



In a village wreathed in superstition, Despo and Loukas must protect themselves and their unborn child from ominous forces at play.

Polis Loizou is a novelist, playwright, filmmaker and performance storyteller. Born and raised in Cyprus, he moved to the UK in 2001. His debut novel 'Disbanded Kingdom' was published by Cloud Lodge Books in 2018 and went on to be longlisted for the Polari First Book Prize. His second novel, 'The Way it Breaks', was published in 2021. His short stories and creative non-fiction have been published in various anthologies and literary journals. Having co-founded an award-winning theatre troupe, with which he has toured the UK festival circuit, Polis has delved deeper into the world of folk storytelling to perform a couple of acclaimed solo shows. Polis currently lives in Nottingham with his husband and cats.
