“No matter how many safety nets we have to catch us when we fall, we are still vulnerable to life’s pitfalls”.

Safety Net is a psychological drama about dependability and trust that intercuts between the lives of a woman trapped in a failing marriage and a man faced with an extreme financial burden. The film examines their reactions in the face of betrayal and injustice, which set them on a collision course for disaster.

Produced and Directed by Eirini Steirou
