Set against the backdrop of protests and economic crisis, an international cast of characters reenacts the absurdities and comedies of who they are and where they come from. As their conflicts resolve, each one of them discovers something or someone that gives new meaning to their lives, fueled in no small part by the the Mediterranean pastry Bourek.

W.C. Rupperts, an utterly paranoid U.S. billionaire, who dresses like a bum in order to appear poor, with baseball hat, stained T-shirt, et al. gets convinced by his Priest, a livid Adventist preacher, who thinks he has decoded the Bible’s doomsday code, that the world will end soon. The only place to survive the cataclysm is a spot on these coordinates: 37’17’16N, 27’05’07E, which coincidentally lands on the sleepy Greek island of Khronos, close to the Turkish coast.

The next day, W.C. is on his way to Khronos, together with his 30-year younger “fiancée” Lilly, who is constantly scheming to find new ways to kill, poison, or overdose him on Viagra, and get her hands on W.C.’s money. W.C. carries a big suitcase, secretly stashed with wads of ten-thousand dollar bills, so he can save his money from the cataclysm, although he didn’t think about what he would do with it afterwards.

Simultaneously, a burnt-out disheveled guy, the famous New York D.J. T.J. Crash, collapses at the door of Boureki Taverna on Khronos Island, claiming to suffer complete amnesia. Boureki Taverna is run by brother and sister Vasilis and Eleni. It is a sleepy tavern, as well as bed-and-breakfast, bakery and convenience store, where the time seemingly stands still. Few guests come, except for the local old men, who play Tavli in front of the tavern. Eleni is trying to continue the family tradition, but is drowning in debt, while Yorgo, a flamboyant hustler and developer, is trying to buy the tavern from Eleni and her brother in order to build a mega-hotel complex in its place.

As if TJ Crash were a messenger of change, suddenly a couple of “organic-only” German tourists, Frank and Inge, appear, seeking unspoiled food and nature, as well as W.C. and Lilly. And as if that were not enough, a couple of inept lady-killers from FYRM (Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia) and Montenegro show up, sleeping in their 1971 Fiat 500, stacked with cans of sardines and spam, living on 1 Euro a day, as well as an illegal Turkish Hashish-dealer, waiting for a fake passport to escape to Sweden, and a Libyan refugee, who fell off a boat, and shows up barely alive on the beach, scaring all the tourists.

Set against the backdrop of TV News: the economic crisis, Occupy protests in the U.S. and Europe, the Arab uprisings, and “doomsday prophecies,” this international cast of characters reenacts the absurdities and comedies of who they are and where they come from.

Along the way they encounter multiple adventures, as well as each other, slowly transcending their differences. As their conflicts resolve, W.C.’s money mysteriously disappears, but each one of them discovers something or someone that gives new meaning to their lives, fueled in no small part by the Mediterranean pastry Bourek.
