The power has been cut off at Athina's home. Athina, unemployed for some time now, takes her last 64 euros and heads towards the electricity company, hoping to make some sort of settlement. On the way, she meets an unemployed dad and his hungry kid, a woman searching for food through garbage cans, an elderly gentleman who cannot afford his medications... A journey into contemporary Athens, a sometimes harsh city, with an unexpected ending...

Στο σπίτι της Αθηνάς, άνεργης εδώ και καιρό, κόβεται το ρεύμα. Mε τα τελευταία 64 ευρώ της, πηγαίνει προς τη ΔΕΗ, ελπίζοντας σε κάποιο διακανονισμό. Στο δρόμο συναντά έναν άνεργο πατέρα που το παιδί του πεινάει, μια γυναίκα που ψάχνει τρόφιμα στα σκουπίδια, έναν ηλικιωμένο που αδυνατεί να αγοράσει τα φάρμακά του... Μια κωμικοτραγική ματιά στη σύγχρονη, στενάχωρη πολλές φορές Αθήνα, της οικονομικής κρίσης.
