Film summary: In a Greek high school, students are exhausted by the pressure of the examinations and of private coaching schools and “they feel guilty if they study, even for a short time, e.g. history instead of studying a subject for the national exams”. The refugee issue, if they care about it, is nothing more than another theoretical sociopolitical problem. Meeting young refugees changes their perspective and leads Eleana and Alexandra to make decisions concerning their future.
