Two sequential stories tell the downbeat tale of unhappy or unrequited love, without seeming to have any particular point in mind, and without keeping an unwavering standard of action or dialogue. In the first story, directed by newcomer MarĂ­a Gavala, a young woman runs away to Athens and experiences her first sexual encounter, writes home to her parents (a self-censored letter), and has a talk with a male friend who describes scenes from a porno movie he has watched. In the second story, directed by Thodoros Soumas, an aspiring novelist stakes out some territory near the house of the woman he loves, only to discover that she is not living alone there -- and is unprepared to consider competition for her favors.
