Based on politician Yanis Varoufakis’ memoir, Adults in the Room takes the audience back to Greece in 2015, a country on the edge of collapse. Two up-and-coming politicians, Yanis and Alexis, rebel against the status quo and subsequently become an inspiration to many. But can their friendship survive in the brutal, unforgiving world of politics?
