Athens 2016. The complexities of immigration are exposed when four lives collide within the backdrop of Amerika square.

 Two Greek friends, along with a Syrian ex-Military doctor, an African singer and a human trafficker each navigate the refugees' crisis in Athens. When one of their actions becomes the unthinkable, the others are forced to work together to escape the consequences. Mixing a kinetic visual style with ripped-from-the-headlines storytelling, Amerika Square is an unflinching look at the mass migration economy—where “borders are business.”
