Storyline

Showing a shameful lack of courage, the faint-hearted, but otherwise, a good man, Anestis, is usually the laughing stock of his small neighbourhood. Exploited by friends and everyone who crosses paths with him, the timid man will see his life take an unexpected turn for the better, when he eagerly swallows a tiny but extremely potent pill, which promises superhuman strength, and above all, an abundance of pluck. As a result, Anestis who is totally unaware of a cruel lie behind his back, decides to take justice into his own hands to right the wrongs, but for how long? In the end, will the scaredy-cat ever believe in himself to finally get even? Written by Nick Riganas
