In the – near future – decadent metropolis of Athens suicide is illegal, while citizens have no other desire but to die.
Near future Athens, the once glorious capital is an absolute urban wasteland, where corruption and apathy have crafted Europe’s most deathful amusement park, filled with hopelessness and spectacular violence. In order to control the self-murdering epidemic, state declairs suicide illegal, defining it as a horrible crime; citizens who get caught, trying to commit, are imprisoned, sent for life in countryside breeding camps. Following the film’s heroes to their chase of one last desire, a great deal of tragicomic surprises come the way.
