Costas has been working for a few months as a security guard in a public hospital. The money isn’t great and he’s still living in his mother’s house, with his adolescent posters on the wall. He’s young, and thinks he’s invincible until his older brother dies. His sister-in-law, Chryssa, has been battling depression for years and is estranged from them, so now he has Niki, his six-year-old niece to care for, who, no matter how much she tries to wipe the mud off the bright white sneakers that her father bought for her, can’t make them look brand new again. Vulnerable as he is, and forced by necessity, he gets caught up in a juicy scheme: making up medical malpractice cases out of nothing.
