A heatwave is ravaging Greece. In a coastal town, the atmosphere is becoming strained, charged with a violence that’s close to exploding. Ashraf, a taciturn immigrant, arrives there to house-sit a home during its owners’ absence. While driving down a dusty road, a cop pulls him over to check his papers... Blind Sun is a highly intriguing film, one that cultivates the atmosphere under a scorching sun.
