Swing Away, directed by Michael A. Nickles, USA (98 minutes)
Following a meltdown that leads to a suspension, professional golfer Zoe Papadopoulos travels to her grandparents' village in Greece to escape the harsh spotlight of the international sports world. Between baking bread and eating baklava, she meets and mentors a ten-year-old girl who is determined - against all odds - to become the next golf sensation. Along the way, Zoe rediscovers her Greek heritage, her love of the game, and the hidden strength within herself as she inspires the townspeople in an epic showdown against a greedy American developer.

Tickets also available at the Avalon Theatre box office, located at 40 East Dover Street, Easton, MD, 21601. The box office opens at 3:30pm before opening night begins.
