EN - Three actors go on a journey through Athens. They seek to listen to fellow citizens engaged in different organisations of the grassroots solidarity movement (a clinic, a pharmacy, a kitchen, a school). Over the course of many conversations, the social imagery of the citizens unfolds as a living continuity.

NL - Drie acteurs gaan op pad in Athene. Ze luisteren er naar medeburgers die in verschillende grassroots solidariteitsorganisaties actief zijn (een kliniek, een apotheek, een keuken, een school).
