Forgettable soapy drama from Greece about a woman who surprises her husband on a business trip, only to see him fooling around with beautiful .  The wife returns home and doesn’t tell him what she knows, instead searching out a new form of independence for herself by becoming a sexy dancer in a nightclub. Her husband is torn apart by jealousy when his wife ventures into territory that doesn’t include him, reacting violently until his chickens eventually come home to roost in the last act. The acting is sincere, but the direction is flat and the brief seventy-six minute running time barely manages to scratch the surface.
