In Case of Fire

Written by

Haris Chaidis meets the beautiful wife of a rich but old architect and they become lovers. Feeling exploited by his cousin, who employs him as an underpaid petty bureaucrat, he decides to rob him. The robbery seems to have been a success, but when Haris opens the bag, it is filled with nothing but blank paper.

Then, when the police knock on his door to arrest him, it is not for the robbery but for the murder of the architect!

In jail, Haris meets Dimitris Skouros, the main character in Acting Out, who gives him a plausible explanation of events.

When he is released from prison, Haris confirms Skouros’ version of events. He exposes his mistress, kills the person who tricked him during the robbery, and gets himself killed in the process, as well.
