Greece is chosen to be the first EU economic experiment. A country cannot go bankrupt like a business could, a state’s possessions cannot be confiscated and resold. The documentary covers the events that took place around Sintagma Square (Constitution Square) in Athens (Greece) on 28-29 June 2011, during the Austerity Measures Vote by the Greek Parliament. The film goes through the events of the extensive protests by the people opposing the Greek sell-out. It documents the social zeitgeist in Greece, and acts in solidarity with the protestors who are combatting police brutality in its various forms. Shot with a handheld Camera, along with footage from other protestors in order to accurately give witness to the actions of Police, Government, Parastate and Protestors. The documentary gives further voice to the civil unrest and public frustration with the political elite, and their allies. The film documents what is probably the most significant vote in Greece since post Junta political system.
