The most important divorce case he had ever come across in his professional life as a lawyer is definitely his own divorce. Orpheus Planes, in the verge of "withdrawing" from circulation both himself as well as his car, can just about afford to pay alimony to his ex wife, Elvira. He and Elvira, a journalist, have a little daughter. This pretty little monster, well versed in guerilla warfare tactics, invades and nearly destroys the house when Orpheus is baby-sitting her, creating real havoc. Totally confused by what’s happening to him, fighting constantly against his bad luck – he is unlucky even with his racing bets – this "weekend father" finds occasionally some pleasurable distraction by getting involved with various inconsequential women, though he has to stay constantly on the defence. His only consolation is his friendship with Akindynos Rossis, nicknamed Carrot, a rather odd individual – something between a "silver screen" figure and a "comic strip" character – a political sciences expert who currently occupies himself as a private eye. This weird bunch of people, lost in a total chaos to start off with, comes to join and make even more chaotic an extraordinary female, a spider-woman and a real sex-symbol, named Salome.
