Thirty-year-old lower middle class Dimitris (Nikiforos Naneris), faint-hearted and not particularly ambitious, is ready to jump at the opportunity that will get him handsomely provided. He wavers between yesterday, the German occupation nightmare and his love debut with a neighbour (Betty Valasi) and contemporary, fluid reality. He meets Thaleia (Betty Arvanity), a rich woman his age, who frequents the same night club as him, but his daily routine is invariably the same. The closure of the small industry in Drapetsona, where he used to work for the last 8 years, and his relationship with Maria (Eleni Theofilou) confront him with a different reality. Maria is a progressive, evening school teacher, full of dreams.
