Yiorgos is released from prison after 14 years of incarceration for a murder he committed in his small Greek village. He spends his first night out in a cheap downtown hotel in Athens. There he meets Strella, a young transsexual prostitute. They spend the night together and soon they fall in love. But the past is catching up with Yiorgos. With Strella on his side he will have to find a new way out. An extraordinary and spellbinding relationship, a post-modern Greek tragedy in the glowing nights of Athens.

In the presence of Panos H. Koutras.
