Corruption is inevitable when the rules and laws do nothing to prevent it.

Makis (Michalis Marinos) is a well-to-do, 40-something depressive in the throes of an existential crisis. His household is one based on lies and pretentious appearances, so he’s more than determined to formulate his own escape plan.

5 Ways 2 Die is the tragi-comic, socio-political tale of Makis’ search for eternal peace.
