Follow the struggle of Greek activists and unionists as they fight against the troika-imposed privatization of their public water service. The film focuses on the fight for public water in Thessaloniki, where, despite 98.2% of voters choosing to maintain public control, the Troika continues to push for privatization, with French multinational Suez set to buy a significant share. However Yiorgos, the president of the local Water Workers' Union, along with his wide coalition of activists and allies aren't throwing in the towel just yet.
