Plato’s Academy

Stavros is a xenophobic shop keeper in his 40s, who likes to spend most of his day sitting outside with his macho buddies, passing judgment on anyone who makes the mistake of passing by. It seems, however, that, apart from revenge, prejudice is another dish that is best eaten cold, for Stavros is about to learn that he has a long lost brother who is also (shock horror!) an Albanian. His smug self-assurance gone and receiving funny looks from his buddies, Stavros is faced with a choice: to evolve in his mentality or perish.
