Nikos is a tailor and he lives in the attic of the atelier that he now supports with a lot of difficulty alongside his elderly father who suddenly falls ill. Forced to hand over the tailor shop to the banks, Nikos devises a plan to take action: he builds a sort of itinerant workshop with which he wanders the streets of Athens in search of customers. After a series of hardships, he will manage to reinvent his profession, put on its knees by the economic crisis and globalization.
