Synopsis: In a working-class neighbourhood of Athens, amid the economic crisis, the resurgence of fascism and the COVID-19 pandemic, a group of eighteen-year-old students persecute immigrants, queers, and anyone who is just different. A classmate of theirs who does not hide his dislike for their actions quickly becomes their target. Victimisers and, at the same time, victims of a poisoned society, the youngsters are ready to go to extremes and turn against anyone who disagrees with their ideas and doesn't approve of their actions.

Cast: Iosif Gavrielatos, Nikos Zegkinoglou, Anastasis Laoulakos, Klelia Andriolatou, Marina Anifanti, Maria Skoula, Giorgos Simeonidis and Theodora Tzimou.
