It’s “cultural June” in Athens and the city centre is buzzing with art. A news crew follows three young artists for three days: Ilia, a singer searching for her place in the limelight; Alexandros, a street artist who must deliver a mural to his sponsor; and Andreas, a senior at the National Theatre School who is trying to make ends meet while rehearsing exhaustively for his finals. The “social truce” is disrupted as their expectations are shattered by the multifaceted establishment, whether it be the law or mainstream culture.
Most of the characters and events in the film are true.
