Suppressed women in Cyprus

As she enters menopause, middle-aged housewife Elpida is haunted by an increasing sense of contempt for the brute of a man she's been married to all these years. However, when a young painter is hired to fix the building she lives in, he interrupts the grey monotony of Elpida's everyday life, which gives way to a series of violent fantasies that gradually seem to merge with reality. PAUSE is an original drama strewn with elements of pitch black humor, which shines a bleak, but ultimately also hopeful, light on equality and family dynamics in modern-day Cyprus.
