Sotiris is a police interrogator in Athens. He has an obsession: he needs to be fair. He judges the suspects after his personal moral and against the law. With the intention to save another innocent soul, he accidentally kills a man. Dora is the only witness to the crime. She is a poor cleaning woman who leads a breathless life. The struggle to survive has made her unfair. The righteous Sotiris and the unrighteous Dora like each other. But love, honesty and justice aren’t easy to combine.
