The Girl with the Suitcases / Nikos Nikolaidis

It’s a hot summer morning in an Athens apartment. Mihalis, a failed thirty-something university student has come to Athens from his native Komotini and is staying at his cousin Takis’ place. Suddenly there’s a knock on the door and Patricia, an attractive American woman, appears carrying two huge suitcases. She seems desperate and asks to talk to Takis. Mihalis can’t communicate with her because he doesn’t speak English. However, he makes the mistake of feeling sorry for her and allows her to spend the night in the apartment.An erotic game begins between the two of them.After Patricia falls asleep, Mihalis goes through the suitcases and is shocked to discover their content… Next morning they are awoken by the persistent ringing of the doorbell. It’s the police....
