Since the start of the crisis in Greece, a growing number of young unemployed Athenian are moving to the countryside, hoping to change their lives for the better. The film follows 35 year old Theodoris, as he settles on the remote island of Ikaria. There, he discovers a society with a unique culture of autonomy and cooperation, and a people who live not only better, but longer than everyone else in one of the world's few 'blue zones' where inhabitans enjoy extraordinary longevity. Director Nikos Dayandas goes in search of the Ikarian secret, discovering how the islanders' radically diferrent lives are increasingly relevant to us in times of economic and social upheaval.
