"WaveOmatics" is a young Greek break-dance group with high ambitions. They practice on the streets in the middle of the old city center because they can't afford professional rehearsal space, and they earn a bit of extra money in doing so. The young artists are regularly confronted by violent thugs from the Greek neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party, which is said to be behind the murder of rapper Pavlos Fyssas.
