In a well-conceived and excellently acted story of forbidden and unequal love, Heleni (Betty Livanou) is a bored housewife who misses the previous excitement of her career as a ballerina and cannot adjust to a dull life with her second husband. One day she meets a Greek executive who works for the European Common Market and there is an immediate attraction -- they decide to keep in touch by phone when he moves back to Paris where he lives with his wife and two children. The two of them plan a getaway to Lisbon for a week, and Heleni experiences all the joys of a new love, and fulfillment. While she thinks about how to tell her husband that their marriage has ended, she is in for an unpleasant surprise from her dashing lover.
