In recent years, Takis works as a taxi-driver, while during the old-good times he had a cinematographic company and later a clothing one. The bankrupt of his company due to the economic crisis brought a radical change in his life. Like many other destroyed professionals, he called on the freelancing job of taxi-driving. During a summer car ride in Athens of 2019, Takis guides us in places that are interwooven with his personal memories, concerns, and views, between the past and the present. Sketcing out the profile of a man, could we learn anything about the contemporary Greek society?
