Five middle class women - politician's wife Eva, heiress Kiki, Anna-Maria, Electra and Ritsa - convene at the backroom of their friend/hairdresser Lia to discuss, in bald terms, their sex lives. They decide to make use of a spare apartment to widen their sexual horizons. Meanwhile, seedy surveillance engineer and mother's boy Lambrou sets up cameras to film their indiscretions and sexual encounters. If he blows their story on the 75th anniversary of their local paper, 'The Liberal', what repercussions may follow? Who cares? Certainly not director Perakis, who makes clear in this frothy, fast-talking, camera-swinging satire, his intention is to enjoy making some broad swipes at provincial patriarchal sexual and religious attitudes, not least by showing an unrepentant, sexually active Archimandrite priest. Unsophisticated, but lively.
