JOY AND SORROW OF THE BODY

Evagoras was sentenced to five years in prison because he was making counterfeit Euro notes in collaboration with his Bulgarian friend Milen. He gets out of prison and travels to Varna, to meet Milen. There he meets Dita, a beautiful hooker. Evagoras falls in love with her but he never touches her. In the meantime John, an Interpol officer from Cyprus in charge of the “Evagoras-Milen” case, arrives in Varna. He is following Evagoras and tries to get in touch with Milen and arrest him. John meets Dita and sleeps with her. At last Milen appears and gives Evagoras a suitcase filled with dollars: it is his reward for his silence during his stay in prison. Milen informs Evagoras that Dita is a hooker. Evagoras falls in deep depression… Dita refuses to meet John again. She is in love with Evagoras. Dita goes to meet Evagoras, who has disappeared after his meeting with Milen. Dita arrives at a friend’s apartment, but the man who waits for her is not Evagoras but John, who tries to rape her. She resists and fights him off and during the fight she reaches John’s gun and kills him. Evagoras silently enters the apartment…
