The work covers a single day - June 20, 2014 - and in this respect many critics have drawn parallels with James Joyce's Odyssey and Heinrich Böll's Billiards at Half-past Nine. And the epigraph is an excerpt from "Days" by the English poet Philip Larkin: "What are days for? / Days are where we live".
A day in the life of a 35-year-old lawyer from the modern lost generation - with bitter humor and self-irony, against the background of the political and social crisis in Greece, he presents an artful tangle of reminiscences and flashbacks, reflections and insights, wanderings in professional and intimate terms, in search of his true nature. There are difficult relationships with parents, complicated relationships with two women, a case of defrauding a client of a beauty salon and a fatal ending... Twenty-four hours, containing the past days, time as a container of life, because, as Philip Larkin asked himself, where would we live if the days were missing?
