Eleftheria is a psychology student, who works in a debt collection agency. Due to her ethical boundaries, she faces the possibility of getting fired.


In the midst of the economic crisis, debt collection companies are thriving in Greece. The reason is mainly the so called red loans, which Greek banks are unable to manage. These companies contact the debtors and through psychological blackmailing procedures push the debtors to find ways to pay their debts. The only problem being that a very big percent of the debtors are unable to follow their instalment plans, due to the impact of the crisis in the Greek economy. In this film we explore the resemblance of the debt collection agencies methods to the results of the Milgram experiment, as well as the compartmentalised self states of the people that are working for them.
