Women’s Conspiracies / Vassilis Vafeas

Alexis is a man at the critical age of 50. He has a good job and an orderly family life. The film begins late one evening with a phone call he gets from his boss’s secretary, which causes him to drive off hurriedly for the company offices. His boss announces to him that he is fired and from this moment on his life becomes a real nightmare. His marriage ends in divorce and is followed by a true odyssey in search of both a new job and another companion. Alexis will experience a series of tragicomic situations in various workplaces while he will relish seductive and absurd scenes with erotic companions of various ages and types. Or could it be that things did not happen this way?
