Synopsis

Yannis (15) and his mother are moving into her boyfriend’s apartment. While dealing with his mother’s indifference towards him, he stealthily starts hanging out with Olga, a socially secluded woman who lives in the basement of the apartment building, with punk appearance and attitude, and steals from the supermarket to cook gourmet meals for herself. Simultaneously, Yannis associates with a group of teenagers, the leader of which bullies him systematically, as well as he does with Olga whenever he sees her in the streets. Yannis struggles to find balance between his need for acceptance by his peers and his “secret” relationship with Olga.
