Greek schoolchildren Alexandra, Vlad and Chrysa love football. Every day, after school, they gather in front of their building to play an intense game of ball. But their neighbours don't like it and regularly drive the kids away. But where else can they go, if there is no play area anywhere nearby? "Every child has the right to play, and we must assert our rights," they decide. Consequently, they go to the town's mayor and demand that a children's playground be built on an overgrown patch of waste ground. At the town hall, however, they discover that it is far from easy to submit such a request. Despite this, they don't give up, and they duly take all the necessary steps to complete the application. After a year of effort, will they finally manage to achieve their goals?
