The film deals with an issue which has been increasingly predominant in Greece during the recent years of economic crisis: the prevalence of psychological depressive disorders. Witnessing the personal experiences of patients of all ages and social backgrounds who grapple with the problem, we give a tangible and definite form to the abstract notion of Melancholia. At the same time, doctors and nursing staff working in mental care facilities relate to us their daily struggle as they take care of patients while they themselves try to cope with the crisis in their own lives.
