Reflecting on Greece´s financial crisis, “My Stuffed Granny” shows a very real adult problem trough a child´s eyes. But in a surprising turn of events, narrated by Sofía, suddenly there´s a glimpse of hope.
Winner in several Festivals, Effie Pappa´s 2014 short story (based on an essay by Nina Kouletaki), shows how a small family gets by thanks to the pension of grandma.
“Little Sofía loves her grumpy granny: even though she is always hungry and eats what little food they can buy. Her pension is the only thing keeping her and her father alive. To what extremes will they go to once granny is no more?”
