Brief synopsis in Greek: Μια μικρή πόλη, ελέγχεται οικονομικά από έναν διεφθαρμένο ιδιοκτήτη τράπεζας και τηλεοπτικού καναλιού, με αποτέλεσμα να έχει συγκεντρώσει όλο το ρευστό της και να εξαθλιώσει τους κατοίκους της. Κάποια μέρα το αφεντικό μετά από μηχανορραφίες της συμμορίας του, απολύει τον  Αχιλλέα, έναν εργατικό υπάλληλο στην τράπεζα του.

Ο Αχιλλέας από τη μια μέρα στην άλλη βρίσκεται στο δρόμο και αντιμέτωπος με τη σκληρή πραγματικότητα. Κάποια στιγμή συναντά στο δρόμο του έναν παράξενο άνθρωπο που του προτείνει να αλλάξει τον κόσμο με ένα πολύ παράδοξο τρόπο. Ο Αχιλλέας δέχεται και ένα περίεργο ταξίδι ξεκινά!
