A 28-year-old man has a chance encounter with Zoe, an 18-year-old school girl who is shoplifting in a supermarket. They develop a strange relationship that progresses to a hasty marriage largely because of pressures from the two sets of parents. Zoe is young, vivacious and irresponsible, thus unable to fit into the mould of a housewife or a helper in the toy supply business of her husband. She wants to be an actress but fails the entrance exams and then toys with the idea of becoming a model. Her husband is passionately in love with her and he forgives her every trespass until a crisis point is reached. A well-shot film with strong performances by the lead and supporting actors. It is both a social comment as well as wry look at the modern mores of the Greek capital and the changed standards of a society that appears to follow too closely directives from non-indigenous cultures that often grate on the local ethos.
