Film synopsis:
Argyris, who was recently released from prison, is friends with Andreas, Marina and Sofia, who altogether form a group of friends who live in a private house. They have reached an emotional dead end and search for something on which they can lean, something which would even be worth dying for. Dragging behind them an eventful past, they busy themselves with silly actions of all kinds: they eat in luxurious restaurants without paying, steal food from supermarkets, clothes from stores, money from safes and from friends, star in porn films (Andreas and Argyris) or found an illegal anti-authoritarian organization (Sofia). Their unconventional behavior draws the attention of the authorities, who place them under discreet surveillance. A team of policemen surrounds their house, under the command of a blond man, waiting for the right moment to enter. The intervention – and the ending without catharsis – will take place after the murder of the blond policeman by Sofia, who, in this way, takes revenge for the abuse of Roza, the leading star of a porn film, who had become involved with them and had persuaded them to rob a rich customer of hers. The cynicism and sarcasm, as well as a certain desperate romance, move the psych of the heroes, beyond the conventions of life – there where death lies in wait.
