GUILT While undergoing an operation, an old man, a former gun dealer, revisits his long life; he returns in time to a place in the past where he made a fortune. As a youth, he visits the place (a colony back then), to buy a torture machine. Later, middle aged, two of the soldiers he met in the colony, work in his home as servants. In his elder years, having lost his fortune, he wanders about like a crazy man, still accompanied by one of the servants. Is this the old man’s real life story or just the the stuff of a nightmare? GUILT is the story of a man and a 50-year-old tragedy that is the history of Cyprus.
