They found themselves homeless in a city that doesn’t know how to help them. The jobless “new poor” of our country have no hope. John Bird, an ex-homeless man and the homeless street paper he created in London, is the starting point, and, through his advice, the film follows Christos Alefantis and his team, as they lay the basis for their “Raft”, the Greek street paper “Shedia”. The camera documents the printing of the first issue, along with the worries whether this endeavor will succeed, so that excluded people are able to find a home, get a permanent job, study and reclaim their position in the society that has chased them away.
