Sinossi

Anestis is a shopkeeper in downtown Athens when the financial crisis strikes Greece . During his daily walk to work, he is perpetually thinking of his various debts: bills, taxes, health insurance, pension fund etc. At the same time he is confronted with the monstrous situation the crisis has created in the city: people looking in the trash bins for food, homeless sleeping in the middle of the street and thousands of closed shops. Wondering who could lend him some money in order to overcome his daily financial problems, he finds out -through the stories of four of his friends- that he is not the only one who has debts; the vast majority of self- employed and small business entrepreneurs are facing the possibility of bankruptcy.
