World Premiere

In a working-class neighborhood of Athens, amid the economic crisis, the resurgence of fascism, and Covid-19, a group of 18-year-old students persecute immigrants, queers, anyone who is just different. A classmate of theirs, who refuses to hide his dislike for their action, quickly becomes their target.
