Two young women on the wrong side of both society and the law fall into a dangerous love affair in this stylish drama from Greece. Martha (Katerina Tsavalou) is a cynical 17-year-old drug addict who supports her habit by working as a prostitute for pimp Manos (Andreas Marianos). Martha has resigned herself to a short and ugly life on the streets when she meets Nadia (Danai Skiadi), a 16-year-old who has fallen into the street life and is also hooking for Manos. Martha and Nadia are rivals at first, especially when Nadia attracts the attentions of good-looking hustler Argyris (Ioannis Papazisis), for whom Martha has long carried a torch. But in time, the two girls become close friends, and then Nadia takes their relationship to a new level by seducing Martha. Martha falls hard for Nadia, but Nadia takes a more opportunistic attitude toward their new romance, and refuses to break things off with Argyris, while Martha retaliates by becomes involved with Miltos (Omiros Poulakis), a close friend of Argyris.
