A 22-years-old boy in Athens has no money, no job, no girlfriend and no food to eat, but he`s got a canary bird and a beautiful singing voice. When he finds himself without a home, he has to seek a shelter for his bird. And when the bird gets trapped inside the shelter, the boy has to find some help. He has to find someone to confess that he has no job, no money, no girlfriend and no food to eat.

Director`s Statement

The film narrates three days in the life of a 23-year-old man living in contemporary Athens, who’s struggling to survive, while at the same time trying to keep his pet canary alive. It’s a struggle against all odds, but mostly against his own foolish pride that prevents from asking for help. He’s determined to make it on his own.
