Was one of those disappointed with politicians and the decisions they have made which forced him to close his sports car automotive shop and move back to the small-town rural life. There was a funny cute scene where Christos was being scolded by an older woman inside his boyhood town who said he should be taking care of business by having a child. He explains that he does want a child, but cannot afford one. Next, the reporter Philip Williams interviews him at his small-town carwash where he still works with and details cars. Christos admits that he is not opposed to any type of work. Washing Cars or shining shoes, he says just let me do it. Later Philips interviews Christos behind closed doors at his private home and as Philip says, the real raw emotions take over. Christos explains that he comes from a people and culture who invented Democracy. But then he says that he is wishing that Greece could rather have some kind of dictator now instead of democracy. He, of course, blames the present politicians for Greece's problems, and then with tears and more raw emotion he explains how Greeks are not lazy people.
Fiona McInnes Honestly the best documentary on the crisis! By far to date I am glad the people are going back to their heritage and to anyone who thinks Greeks are lazy!? This is crazy talk !!! To go back to the old ways is wonderful because once upon a time Greece had it all they didn't need any other countries and this documentary actually shows great hope for not just the Greeks but to all people..... In time maybe we will all need to think about doing things the way we used to!!! Love and light to all oz fee

The Odyssey: With one thousand workers losing their job every day, Greeks have had to find some way to survive. As this fascinating report shows, many have done that by returning from the desolate cities to the farms.
When the financial crisis hit, Thessaloniki banker Kostas Bozos went back to basics. He returned to his family village for education in farming from his aging father and then on to a local agricultural college to finesse those skills into winemaking and marketing. It's a move that more and more Greeks are making in response to the crisis. "I think everybody should have done the same because we can't expect anything from the government. They are useless so we have to do it by ourselves", says Alexandra, a businesswoman. When she left the city to start a company growing gourmet snails everybody thought she was crazy, but now business is booming. But the transition from city to country isn't always voluntary or successful, Christos Rozakis argues, his voice trembling with emotion. Having his business ruined by the crisis means that he and his wife do not have the money to have the child they desperately want. "I come from the people that invented democracy and I am wishing that I had a dictator now. Do you understand how bitter that makes me?"
Matthew Fronimos Thank you for producing this video. Here I am watching this in 2020 and I am identifying with the people featured. I understand their struggle and their spirit. My grandparents came to America 109 years ago in the hopes of a better life. Now a century later, I am developing my plan so that I may return to the "patrida". I hear the voice of my ancestors calling me to come home.
