The official Greek entry at the 1967 Chicago Film Festival, this psychosexual drama was directed by Yiorgos Skalenakis (O Tsitsiolinos). The story concerns a merchant ship captain named Vassilis (Spyros Fokas) who returns from one of his lengthy voyages and takes his beautiful wife, Elena (Elena Nathanael), on vacation to a seemingly peaceful seaside village. While they are staying at a local resort, Elena finds herself irresistibly drawn to a stranger (Theodoros Roubanis) and tells Vassilis that she is in love with the man. The captain angrily leaves his wife and returns to Athens, and Elena begins a tumultuous affair with the handsome stranger, which threatens to destroy her marriage as well as her composure. Skalenakis went on to adapt the popular Ah! Afti i Guineka Mou for the screen the following year.
