This forty day adventure proves tougher than any of them ever thought possible, as the money dries up the teams are forced to push themselves harder than ever before in the struggle not only to survive but to make it to the final.Art of Survival is the definitive arts hustle and the ultimate answer to the age old question: what is art really worth?

Four artists, including 2 cellists, an opera singer and an award-winning portrait painter have been dropped in Athens, Greece with no money, no credit cards and only their talent to get them back home for a prestigious appearance at the Edinburgh Festival. Singer Lindsey Crow and cellist Li Lu take on artist Johan Andersson and cellist Janie Price in a race from Athens to Edinburgh, financed only by the cash they make from their own art

With empty pockets, Janie and Johan take a big risk when they take a detour to Capri. Meanwhile, an undercover police officer puts an end to Li Lu and Lindsey’s moneymaking in Rome.
