Under the Stars is a 2001 film set in Cyprus.


The film begins in Cyprus, 1974. A Greek right wing military coup overthrows the government, and the Turkish government invades the island. After a period of intense fighting, the UN intervenes and draws a "Green Line" through the middle of Cyprus, separating the Turkish and Greek territories. Thousands of refugees are relocated and killed, including ten year old Lucas’ parents. Twenty six years later, Lucas is living a hermit’s life, haunted by the memory of the past.
