Stratos is a lowly middle-aged worker at an Athens bakery with a double life as a hit man, gunning down strangers for a mysterious paymaster called Painter. In his shadowy past, Stratos served a long jail sentence for murder, notching up a debt of gratitude to the crime godfather who saved his life in jail. The director described the film as a "Mediterrean Film Noir", which rings true.
