Member of both the European Film Academy and the Hellenic Film Academy, Vassilis Mazomenos dutifully pens and helms a modern day Greek tragedy, told through the lives of seven individuals crushed by the economic crisis. Seven chapters about seven broken individuals, build a tragical unicum about what it means to live in Greece in these hard times of financial restraint. “The company”, “the factory”, “streets”, “batman”, “the farm”, “live” and “the terrace” are the names of the episodes representing the whole gamut of a class-riven society. The leading thread connecting all these stories is a psychological support center called "life line" to which the protagonists of each episode call to get their pain off their chest and ask for help, comprehension and support.
