The film presents the riotous years immediately after the Greek Civil War. Vasiliki is the wife of a Greek communist guerrilla during Greek Civil War. The local gendarmerie arrests her because she brought food to her husband. The chief of gendarmerie charmed by her beauty, rapes her. Then, he moved in another city but returned to ask her to follow him (meanwhile her husband had been killed in the war). His love for the wife of a communist is the cause for which he is expelled by the gendarmerie. Thus he moves to a place in Northern Greece making plans for his professional future. After the sudden death of his partner his plans fail. He seeks help from a rich businessman who though uses his ideas for his own purposes. The impediments that he meets make him more and more violent resulting to lose his wife and eventually to reach the crime when he kills the businessman.[1]
