Stelios is the owner of a Jazz Club in Athens. A few years ago, through the help of his former associate Vassos, Stelios received a business loan from the Romanian in order to renovate his club. In 2010, the recession finds Stelios on the brink of bankruptcy unable to repay the loan. The Romanian meets with Stelios and gives him one day to come up with a solution. Trying to buy some good will for his old friend, Vassos asks Stelios to meet up with Omar, an Albanian strip-bar owner who also owes money to the Romanian.
Omar and Stelios’ lives will soon cross in the most unexpected of ways. In a vortex of adultery, drug abuse, violence, guilt and self-deception, Stelios has only a few hours left to save his club, salvage his crumbling marriage, battle the mafia loan-sharks, baptize his employee’s kid and show up at school to receive his son’s report card as a responsible parent.
