Plot

Hanging out, clubbing, cruising brothels and the city streets, petty thievery, solicciting in Omonia Square... These are the superficial elements which unite the group of young "Pontioi" (Greek Russians who originated from the coast of the Black Sea) now living in Menidi, a poor neighborhood on the western outskirts of Athens. Having arrived from Kazakstan a few years earlier, they feel isolated in their new homeland, despite the fact that - as their leader Sasha says - they are of Greek descent. Adolescents hungry for adventure, they dare to challenge the great city that sprawls seductively at their feet. Using aΙΙ the means at their disposal, they stop at nothing. Only Sasha bravely admits to himself that whatever happens now is merely transient - a crossing that will take him closer to the fulfillment of his dreams. Their lives, their values and the blood ties that bind them start to crumble as they collide with the ruthless world which they so eagerly strive to conquer from the edge of the city.
