Apo Tin Akri tis Polis
Having arrived from Kazakhstan a few years earlier, they feel isolated in their new homeland, despite the fact that - as their leader Sasha says - they are of Greek descent.
Adolescents hungry for adventure, they dare to challenge the great city that sprawls seductively at their feet. Using all the means at their disposal, they stop at nothing. Only Sasha bravely admits to himself that whatever happens now is merely transient - a crossing that will take him closer to the fulfillment of his dreams. Their lives, their values, and the blood ties that bind them start to crumble as they collide with the ruthless world which they so eagerly strive to conquer from the edge of the city.
