Synopsis

In times of recession, here is a portrait of three Greeks trying to take their destiny in their own hands. Could this crisis be our chance to re-invent ourselves and our society?

We follow Glorgos,who became homeless, finding the strength to overcome his difficulties and put his life back together. Then, Grigoris’ family as it seeks a better quality of life leaving the city. Finally, meet the activist volunteer group behind the “potato movement” (our protagonist llias) as their activities impact the society as a whole by challenging the commercialfoods supply chain and practicing solidarity and direct democracy.

As the economic crisis lingers and deepens, Greece is not far away and we may see the necessity for initiatives like in Greece in many other countries in the not so far future. Our protagonists are here to give us courage and strength.
