Lured by the big city's bright lights, a band of rebellious young friends--Stefi, Charoula, Petros, and Argiris--summon up the courage to leave their families and their sleepy little town, to find refuge in a squalid third-class Athenian hotel. However, in the bustling capital, the unsuspecting pipe-dreamers are in for a rude awakening, as the dangerous lack of money will soon push the at-risk youths into delinquency, against the backdrop of a doomed romance between Charoula and the handsome motocross champion, Panos. Before long, an unwelcome brush with the law will lead the unlucky ones straight to jail, while in the meantime, the rest of the group delves deeper and deeper into the perilous world of drug addiction. Right now, things are looking bleak, and life has hit rock bottom. Could this be the turning point in the survivors' pitiable existence? Written by Nick Riganas
