American musicologist Chris King is a legend, the most obsessive collector of old 78 records alive, and also the only one who can use modern technology to unlock their sonic secrets & remaster them for a 21st century audience. For years, he's lived in a world of nostalgia, listening to music from a distant past. But his discovery of the music of Epirus in northern Greece changed his life.
“Great music can shift our perspectives on the world... documentaries like this can do much the same."” -Scannain.
Because the old 78s he first fell in love with, containing a barbaric and raw folk music that he believes connects us with our most ancient ancestors, is still being played today in the mountains of Epirus. Travelling there, Chris began to break out of his prison of nostalgia and started to find a home for himself, for the first time in his life.
