Solidarity School

In Thessaloniki, Greece, a group of volunteers has created the solidarity school "Odysseas" (Ulysses), where immigrants can learn Greek and foreign languages for free. The school year starts smoothly and we watch a few of the members of the Odysseas' theatrical group in their daily routine: Yanni, a carpenter from Albania, who is the director, Ommid, a young refugee from Iran and Antonis, philologist in a high school, both of them actors. Soon, the difficulties of the theatrical production seem insignificant as the school faces a huge question of survival. The film follows the teachers, students and caring friends of "Odysseas" in their struggle to keep the school alive.
