Nakos, a racist Greek nationalist, is unemployed and still lives with his parents at age 38. He tracks the increasing number of immigrants in his apartment building with disgust. His friend Billy, a tattoo artist, falls in love with African singer Tereza, but she wants to leave Greece. Tarek, a Syrian doctor, is also looking to flee the country with his daughter.
