    Heya Guys,

    I've come across this problem a couple of times now and I was wondering if anyone might be able to help. Is there a way of expressing the following in Greek?

    'The book/film is set in....(e.g. Greece)'

    i.e. when and where the plot takes place.

    I'm afraid the only ways I can think of are:

    Το βιβλίο/ η ταινία βασίζεται στην/ συμβαίνει στην - but these don't sound right to me.

    If anyone could offer some advice, it would be greatly appreciated :)
