Synopsis

There is a city on the island of Cyprus, festering with crime and corruption. Zoe, Makis and Phivos, lost souls in their mid 30’s, meet while performing a random act of kindness. The rewarding feeling and the adrenaline rush of their actions, bring them together to try and save their city from its decay. As they begin on a journey that none of them are equipped to take, their vigilantism is purely driven by their generations’ need to make a difference. They have no resources, no clear goal, no way to know where to start and how; as they move forward, some will want to help them and others will want to squash them.
