When retired 68 year-old Meir discovers that his 30 years of planning the annual village celebration have been summarily discarded and the job has been given to inexperienced local teens instead, the ground beneath his feet begins to give way. In his effort to restore a sense of meaning and vitality, Meir begins to rebel against the inevitable: the betrayal of his physical body, the growing distance from his children, and the loss of relevance.
Reconstructing fiction from real life, AFRICA is the cinematic journey of an ageing parent crafted by the hands of his loving son, in this deeply personal story on reinventing oneself, as years go by.

Faced with life changing news, Maria (Emma Suárez), a fifty-five year old Spanish woman from Bilbao, chooses to take a trip to Greece with her closest girlfriends against the advice of her son and doctors. A spontaneous decision leads her to the island of Nisyros, a tiny haven of peace and calm that immediately feels like home. While exploring the beautiful island and soaking in its hidden treasures, she meets Stefanos and finds herself falling in love against all odds. What seemed like a brief escape from reality soon turns into an unexpected chance at happiness, in a luminous story of a woman, who takes a leap of faith and dares to live for the moment on her own terms.
Set on the mesmerising Greek island of Nisyros, where the sun shines on a majestic volcano, “Window to the Sea” is a powerful and hopeful story about love, loss and fearlessly confronting life, simply by leaning on someone else.
