The perfect antidote to economic crisis: inventive escapism and a unique homage to sci-fi B-movies.

A strange epidemic strikes crisis-torn Greece: hordes of Athenians are fleeing the city for no definite reason. As the epidemic spreads, Athens becomes a literal ghost town. Shot in black and white 16mm, blending a B-movie sensibility with surf rock and balancing the personal with the political, this unconventional debut celebrates with anarchic spirit a glorious exodus towards both personal and cinematic freedom.
