NICOSIA: Award winning writer/director Christos Siopachas is in postproduction with Five Shilling Nylon, a love story set in 1950 about a miller whose life is turned upside down by the arrival of a young married woman at the mill.

Marios Piperides and Marios Petrondas are producing through AMP Filmworks. The budget of the film was close to 1 m EUR.
