In a small Greek lagoon town, two women live their dismal lives and dream of finally escaping the dump. Before being transferred here from Athens, Elisabeth was an ambitious policewoman. Now she is lonely, bad-tempered and usually hung over. Rita is the withdrawn, secretive sister of a pop singer who performs at the local disco. His sudden death shocks the town and calls its social fabric into question. Elisabeth is put in charge of solving the case; the further she gets with her investigation, the more secrets emerge from the morass.
