Waiter Renos leads a modest, mundane life: a hobby horticulturalist, loneliness determines his everyday life. This changes abruptly when his neighbour Milan disappears without a trace and two mysterious figures appear: »The Blond« and Gina plunge the down-to-earth Renos into a perilous adventure. The waiter puts his boring life aside, even reaching his limits as he confronts love and death.
Set in Athens’ underground, Steve Krikri’s first feature film is based on true events in the murky New York of the 1980s. A fantastic film about a murder narrated by an eccentric character.
