Yiorgos is released after serving a 14-year prison sentence for a murder committed in his native village. He spends his first night of freedom in a small shabby hotel in the centre of Athens where he meets Strella, a transsexual prostitute. They sleep together and shortly afterwards start living together. But Yiorgos's past catches up with him. He must find a way of getting out of the situation, with Strella at his side.
