Brief synopsis in English:

Three Greek mothers cook and send food packages to their children who study away from home. A man in a small van delivers the mothers’ food to students across Greece. Food in the hands of Greek mothers, is a powerful practical and symbolic tool that bridges any geographic and emotional distance and ensures that family bonds are kept tight forever!  With humour and social insight, the documentary opens a window into the particularity of the Greek family with the powerful mother figure at the centre and the children as kings and queens! It explores the interdependent  mother - child  relationship, the complex emotional and psychological dimensions that evolve and the traditional nature of the Greek family at a time when Greek society is struggling  to align  itself to the needs and realities of the western world.
