‘’Thirteen Blue’’ is an impressionist portrait of Ellie, a thirteen years old only-child, who spends time alone indulging into her first existential worries, during a common Greek heat wave. In the meantime, her family friend is about to give birth in the water. Ellie is living with her grandmother and mother, forever sleeping in her mother’s bed and finding comfort in her mother’s buggy clothes. The building is deserted just like the city. After saying goodbye to Daphne, their family friend, Ellie gets lost in her private world, filled with imagery and silent secrets. A period of confusion and revelation has begun, indicating that Ellie is growing up. Fluid like the water, her self lives in internal turmoil contrasting the empty city’s serenity.

Το «Μπλε Δεκατρία» είναι ένα λεπτομερές πορτρέτο της Έλλης, ενός δεκατριάχρονου μοναχοπαιδιού, που περνά χρόνο μόνη της βουτώντας στις πρώτες τις υπαρξιακές ανησυχίες, κατα τη διάρκεια ενός καλοκαιρινού καύσωνα.Το κτήριο είναι άδειο, όπως και η πόλη. Μένοντας με τη γιαγιά και τη μαμά, η Έλλη κοιμάται στο κρεβάτι της μαμάς της και φορά τα ρούχα της ψάχνοντας για ασφάλεια. Αφού αποχαιρετήσει τη Δάφνη, την οικογενειακή τους φίλη, η Έλλη χάνεται στον προσωπικό της κόσμο που είναι γεμάτος εικόνες και σιωπηλά μυστικά, τα οποία μοιράζεται με εμάς.Μια ταραχώδης περίοδος με αποκαλύψεις και κραδασμούς έχει ξεκινήσει, σηματοδοτώνας ότι η Έλλη μεγαλώνει. Μεγαλώνει και διαμορφώνεται ανάλογα με τις αλλαγές του περιγύρου της αλλά και με τις μετατοπίσεις της δικής της προσοχής. Ρευστή σαν το νερό, η Έλλη είναι σε εσωτερικό αναβρασμό που αντιφάσκει με την καλοκαιρινή νωχελικότητα της πόλης. Είναι έτοιμη να ξεκινήσει το πρώτο της ταξίδι.
