A portrait of the Greek economic crisis through the characters who decide to take control of their own destiny and change it. Giorgios, homeless, is fighting to rebuild his life. At the same time, Grigoris leaves the city with his family seeking a better quality of life in the countryside. Finally, Ilias initiates the “Potato movement” in his city’s activist group, which grows to be national, to challenge the food supply chains through solidarity and direct democracy. While inequalities across Europe are rising due to the economic crisis, the courage of these three characters reminds us that people can change reality.
