One Chance in Four (1980)

Film details


Play which examines the conflict between the generations of a Greek-Cypriot family. Dimitri and Trulla are to be married. All seems well for the newly-weds, but there is a mystery surrounding Trulla's cousin Janni. An element of the play concerns the genetically-inherited disease thalassaemia. One effect of the disease is that survivors continue to have the appearance of 14-year-olds, even in their 20s. Due to the impossibility of simulating this, thalassaemic patients take part in the play.
