    • Synopsis
    • ATHENS, present day: crippled by Greece's economic crisis, the city has fallen victim to one of the worse crimes waves in Europe. Gangs of armed men pour into the country to take advantage of the chaos and a series of violent robberies rocks Greece to its core.
      To combat this, a new police motorbike unit, called DIAS, is created by the government. Its specialty is to deploy four heavily armed officers to the scene of a crime in under one minute.
      THEO, a young Athenian who’s just lost his job, decides to join up. Galvanized by the the thrill of the chase and wanting to make a difference, he is quickly thrown into a maelstrom of action and violence, and become a pivotal player for his unit. Yet with each new arrest, the enraged gangs plan a series of even more deadly crimes that will push Dias to its breaking point, until Dias itself, becomes their target.

      This film is inspired by the real DIAS motorcycle-riding squad that patrols the streets of Athens since 2010.
