Syrena is a squatted house in Warsaw that is home to 65 people, including a number of families. It also provides space for the Warsaw Tenants Association, Workers Initiative, Anarchist Black Cross, Warsaw Revolutionary Theatre, Amature Opera Front, Punk Yoga, No One Is Illegal, anti-facist groups, a bike workshop, screen printing workshop, anarchist library, a visual arts workshop and more. This inspirational film documents the struggle to stop the eviction of Syrena and also touches on the wider struggle to stop 'reprivatisation' (the widspread practice of turning public housing over to private developers) and the ongoing gentrification of the city.
