The name Van Vlahakis might not be well known, but his is the immigrant success story that perhaps we don't hear of often enough. The Greece native landed in America with only $22 dollars to his name and wound up founding Earth Friendly Products, a multi-million dollar company. And perhaps completing the circle of the American dream, his tale has now inspired the biopic, "A Green Story."

A Green Story

The name Van Vlahakis might not be well known, but his is the immigrant success story that perhaps we don't hear of often enough. The Greece native landed in America with only $22 dollars to his name and wound up founding Earth Friendly Products, a multi-million dollar company. Now, perhaps completing the circle of the American dream, his tale has now inspired the biopic, "A Green Story." 

Ed O’Ross, Annabella Sciorra, Shannon Elizabeth, Malcolm McDowell, Billy Zane, Louis Mandylor and Debbie Matenopoulos are among the ensemble cast in writer/director Nick Agiashvili's film which premiered last year at the L.A. Greek Film Festival. Today, we have an exclusive clip to share with you. In this clip we see a young Van, played by George Finn ("LOL") sharing some time with his first love (Alessandra Torresani of "Caprica" fame) before some news from Greece arrive under his door.

"A Green Story" is now playing in limited release. You can watch the trailer right here.
