Podbrosy

Greek Premiere
Denis is a superhero like no other: he was raised in an orphanage and learnt how to be popular to other kids by using his unique powers of pain immunity. One day, his mother turns up and takes him with her, in a community that has found a dodgy way to earn money by tricking rich people. Denis becomes a “jumpman,” someone who jumps in front of cars to blackmail the drivers. As his physical and emotional wounds get healed, he starts feeling like a human being again, experiencing all sorts of suffering from people who are ready to destroy the foundations of society – wearing a smile, without a single sign of discomfort.
