The First Line (2014)

Two Athenian attorneys pursue litigation against the British Museum for the return of the Parthenon Marbles. Andreas (Pantelis Kodogiannis) returns from New York to his homeland of Greece by invitation of the Director of the Acropolis Museum (Giancarlo Giannini). Andreas partners with his childhood friend and love interest Eleni (Kassandra Voyagis) and takes the case to London. Their efforts are fraught with difficulties including the social destabilization of the economic crisis that plagues Athens. In their pursuit of the return of the stolen artifacts, the spirit of Athina is reinvigorated. As the bronze statue of Athena Promakhos (Athina of the Frontline) used to stand guard in front of the Parthenon, both must find the courage to stand in defense of what they love.
