Seemingly drawing equal inspiration from Gregg Araki, early Almodovar and the Eurovision Song Contest, Xenia is a road trip not soon forgotten. Strangers in their own birthplace, gay 16-year-old Danny living in Crete and 18-year-old Odysseus living in Athens, cross the entire country in search of their Greek father, after their Albanian mother passes away. Determined to force him to acknowledge paternity, little do they know that the road to the much-coveted Greek citizenship is not well paved. A dramedy of brotherly love and outsider acceptance is a spirited, and audience-pleasing gem.
