Ballad for a Pierced Heart (I balada tis trypias kardias)
In the clean mountain air, Olga gets her mojo back and decides she will return the money. Manos doesn’t show his frustration but reaches out to his mother, Aliki, and expresses his murderous thoughts to her. She convinces her weak-minded narcissist of a son that the right thing to do is betraying Olga and keeping the money for themselves. Of course, no one must know of the one million euros, so Iraklis must “disappear”, too. To that end, they contact Tsekos as well, and put a contract on both Iraklis’ and Olga’s heads.
But Tsekos, who’s spent decades in the “making people disappear” business, knows better than letting a chance like this slip through his fingers. He has a better plan and no qualms about it: killing the lot of them and keeping the million for the family. That means there is no room for outside witnesses… but what about the inside ones?
Lost in their conniving planning and scheming, the three families forget the strongest motive of all: love. Pure, romantic, unrequitted love, the kind that can drive a man to do anything in order to save an unsuspecting woman from the wolves that surround her.
