Plot
Two teenage boys, a ticket inspector, a young couple, immigrants, children, all cornered at the end of a blind alley in the center of Athens.
A black-and-white episodic film with standing-out aesthetics, spare, non-linear narration and tough language. Exclusion, violence, psychological cannibalism and consecutive power failures portray a society on the edge, "forgotten in the dark" as noted by of the characters. As victims and villains switch roles, a mechanism stronger than their own volition is revealed: the meat grinder of bounced checks, empty bank accounts and bankrupt dreams that moves the action forward to the point of dead end.
