Description

Athens 2022. A series of natural disasters and massive disruptions have left the citizens of Greece’s capital city tormented by angst and insomnia that persists for months now. Amidst all this, a genderqueer robber is allegedly roaming the dark city streets hunted down by the police. No one can really tell whether this night creature is just another urban legend or if they really exist. During one night, a few sleepless Athenians will experience a rare encounter and for the first time in a while, they will feel connected in their hearts. Together they will finally go to sleep.
