COOL observes the parallel, frequently intertwining stories and common fates of some very different young people during 24 hours in the summer, from a prison release through the concrete landscapes of Athens to the grazing lands of Mount Psiloritis in Crete. What the characters have in common are a variety of problems inherited from their corrupt parents. Until recently living an easygoing life, the young people suddenly find themselves in deep water, forced to “grow up.”  English subtitles.
