From turbulent Greece, an urgent invitation to resistance, solidarity and, finally, to dance!

Electra is in her early 30s, an artist and activist living in Athens. She babysits for a living, argues with her parents and visits her boyfriend, a political prisoner. Above all she struggles to find her place in a troubled city and a beaten society. Anger and humour go hand in hand in this handmade labour of love, not painting a bleak portrait of a collapsed country but offering a tender look at a young generation in search of new meaning and hope.
