Storyline

A young gay man in Athens, Angelo, keeps his sexual identity a secret from his family. He falls hard for a rough sailor, Mikhalis, and moves in with him. Mikhalis convinces Angelo to dress in drag and work a corner with other transvestites. With the money, Mikhalis buys a fancy motorcycle and hangs out in bars. By day, Angelo is in the army; at night, he whores. At Christmas, he visits his grandmother, and we learn that she and his mother were also prostitutes. A crisis ensues when neighborhood men beat up Angelo: his family is informed, the army discharges him, and his father goes crazy. Then Mikhalis wants Angelo gone. What will the young man do?

This is a true story
4 August 2008 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

I would like to write that the people that say this movie is really bad well they are wrong.!!! This is a true story , and Grecce at that time was very back (culture wise)in time it was like the 50ies for the States .... I was here when this happened (in Greece) and I'm very sorry to say that the people who watched this has no idea how the life in Greece was then. As for the Film well have you seen any Greek movies that were made good . Of course not cause Greek film is not the top ten, the States are . Im sorry to write that if you do not know the language and the culture then don't watch it as for the previous person I totally agree with him.
