Climbing St. Friday is a poignant, nostalgic look at the 1970s adventures of a young Greek-American girl who is sent by her parents from a small town in the Midwest to Athens, Greece, for a year of college. As she spreads her wings in the land that introduced democratic ideals to the world, she does so against the backdrop of a country recently taken over by an oppressive military regime.
