Elpida, a middle aged housewife, is tormented by an oppressive and loveless marriage with a man who no longer considers her feelings and desires. When a young painter is employed to paint the building she lives in, Elpida’s monotonous life is surreptitiously disrupted, and her imagination starts to flourish as she attempts to reconcile the unquenchable desires of her body with the stern coldness of her husband she no longer loves.
