Following in the tradition of the new Greek Cinema phenomenon, Athens-born director Phedon Papamichael brings a searing expose of the fragility of the human psyche in his new short film “A Beautiful Day”. Gene (James Brolin) gets up day after day and follows the same monotonous routine that he has lived since the death of his wife ten years earlier. He is aging fast from illness and loneliness and has given up on the future. Today, however, he awakens with a new determination to end the life he has known. Today, there is a new resolve that will change the course of everything.
