While filming a documentary about the “missing” employees in the Greek public service, the two filmmakers meet Haroula, a desperate mother in search of her son Panos who is one of the missing. When he is suspected of fraud, Haroula, with the documentarians and their cameras in tow, embarks on a mission to clear Panos’s name. In search of her son, Haroula will turn every stone. From machismo and racism all the way to ableism, the cornerstones of modern society are turned upside down in this merciless and hilarious pseudo-documentary about a contemporary Greek tragedy.
