Plot
Angel is a young homosexual living very discreetly in an unfriendly and barren social milieu. The time comes for him to fall in love. It is with Michael, an experienced and able"professional" who invites him to live and have an affair with him. Angel has nothing to lose by deserting his family home: an alcoholic father, a hysterical mother worn out by work and an invalid sister. Events then follow their course swiftly: The lover convinces his beloved to resort to transvestite prostitution, this being the only way to meet their needs. Angel, however, will not be able to endure for long the violent accumulation of desperation. He kills Michael in an outbreak of love. The film's aim is to focus the spectators' attention on situations that exist beyond the police records, harshly illuminating the dark sides and the social discrimination in Greek society. It is not a taste for the exotic that dictated the choice of the film's subject matter. In human beings forced into a marginal position, the lack of an alternative increases the violence of conflicts and materializes the problem of modern society as a whole: the problem of solitude and of freedom.
