Synopsis
K. is a doctor on his last day of retirement. His kids have migrated to another country and everyone in Athens is preoccupied with the violent riots on the streets.

K. finds shelter in discussions with his dead friends and family that comment on his life while he is trying to make choices about his future. The endless march of rioters taking place in the background will inevitably collide with his fantasy world.
