In a crowded part of a small city, each day after school, Alexandra, Vlad, Chrysa and the rest of their crew gather in front of Christos’ house to play soccer until bedtime.

But as soon as they begin the neighbors assault them with curses, threats and sometimes violence. The kids’ reaction is fiercely defiant. There’s nowhere else to go. Alexandra decides to talk to the mayor and insist that he see the situation for himself. Thus begins a yearlong campaign to get the town to build them a play area. Over this time the kids’ lives and perceptions are revealed while their determination and friendship fuels their coping skills and sharpens their resolve. Intimate access to a remarkable cast of characters will make for an engaging film and series.
