Black Beer tells the story of Andreas, a vagabond musician who decides to gather enough money to bury Lazaros, another street artist, who was murdered. However, in the course of the novel Lazaros’s death offers Andreas the chance for a personal ‘resurrection’. A crime novel without crime officers, interspersed with small, truelife stories which, though neglected by the press, reveal Athens’ noir aspect.

Dimis, the author who writes successful crime novels inspired by true facts is depressed as he was left by his girl-friend. He is beginning a group therapy where he meets Aliki who is dealing with a  difficult marriage with distant Nikos. But Nikos disappears. Dimis finds Aliki very attractive and does his best to help her. At the same time he is writing a book on the kidnapping of Eleonora, a true fact of some years ago. Aliki and Dimis will become very close and finally lovers. Do they really want Nikos to come back ?

An author is writing successful crime novels inspired by true facts.

He gives his forth book to his editor and to us, the readers, to read part by part.

We come to know how Vlassis Demertzis is re-judged after seven years in prison for the murder of his young and beautiful wife who from time to time was leaving their two kids to work as a whore to gain some money (but was it the only reason ?).

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.
