If youth is the season of hope, it is often so only in the sense that our elders are hopeful about us. And each crisis seems final simply because it’s new. – George Eliot
Athens 2018. 44% of youth is unemployed.
A generation lost in no man’s land, wandering outside of the classroom and the labor market amid a booming sharing economy and expanding gentrification. Five youngsters avoid waiting for an empty future by seeking entertainment in the luxurious Airbnb establishments that one of them is cleaning for a meager fee. On the rooftops they look out over a city in turmoil, daydreaming about a world of possibilities.
