A documentary based on the original play by Euripides, Medea, now set in the streets of present day Athens through a breathtaking detective manner. Throughout the investigation we experience, conversations with theoreticians, directors & actors, casting sessions, rehearsals but most importantly awe-inspiring interviews with people on the street.
