Happy Sunset focuses on the residents of a retirement home in modern-day Athens. The situation is universal and could take place in any metropolis. These elderly folks, because of their age or indigency, have been abandoned by their own children and society and left to endure almost prison-like conditions, where exploitation and heartlessness by the management prevail.
