The Acropolis offers a view of one of the most poverty-stricken districts in Athens. The surrounding shantytown houses a diverse community of people who survive by collecting discarded metal. Before the sun rises, they set out in their three-wheel trucks on the streets of the metropolis to gather metal refuse with the hope to exchange for money at the end of each day. Every day they hope will bring in a richer haul.
