Set on a hedonistic Greek Island, a middle-aged doctor becomes obsessed with a young tourist when she lets him tag along with her group of hard partying friends, Suntan will be released in selected cinemas nationwide on 28 April 2017

By the time summer arrives, though, the island has turned into a thriving, wild vacation spot with nude beaches and crazy parties. When Kostis meets the beautiful and flirty Anna, he falls hard for her and goes out of his way to conquer and impress her. Before long, Kostis is spending nearly all of his time getting drunk, partying hard, and even making out with Anna.
