New York City, 1913. Recent Greek immigrant Mary Ford is accused of killing her lover. Mary claims the real murderer is her husband. But her husband is already dead. Maria’s defense relies on the story of how she came to America. Her tale begins five thousand miles away in her birthplace in the old world, a village on the shores of the Black Sea in Greek Asia Minor. Here, a web of jealousy, intrigue, mystery, deceit, murder and finally escape leads us to a dramatic climax, in which love endures beyond the grave.
‘The Case of Mary Ford’ stars Branko Tomovic (Entity), Yannis Stankoglou (Hostage) and Dimitra Hatoupi (The Third Night) alongside newcomer Tamar Karabetyan.
