Jimmy is a wealthy high-school student, about 17 years old. Mary is a trainee lawyer in her 30’s. Makis is a fifty-year-old family man and the owner of a mini-market.

Three very different people to each other and their everyday life.

In the frame of their conventional life that pressures them, when everything seems so still and expected, these three people find their own way out.
