Film synopsis: 
When you are caught, unsuspected, to The Trap, it is almost certain that the end has come. “The Trap” is a documentary film about the restitution of disabled / handicapped people. A glance at psychiatric institutions (operating as storages of human beings) and endangered guest houses. All that during Christmas time in Athens of 2009. Our hero, Dionysis, is 34 years old and lives with his mother. He is quadriplegic and suffers from a slight mental retardation. He loves Sunday “strolls”, singing, talking on the phone and secretly drinking coca cola. His future is uncertain. In his own words: “Today’s society is a very tough place to live. Ok, our parents will eventually go but what is there left to see for us children?”
