Title Synopsis:
A satisfying narrative - a tribute to the most noir and rock 'n' roll pedestrian street in Athens.

A voluptuous mural of an era from the 1960s to the present day, with characters both real and fictional. A novel that recalls, recreates and glorifies the epic street of Fokionos Negri and the famous statue of the Dog - how could Judy Garland, the Ramones, the poet Miltos Shachtouris, Gustavus Flaubert, George Lanthimos and the Weeping Lady of the fountain at the corner of Fokionos and Eptanissos be connected to it?

An enigmatic Thessaloniki man looking for something in Foca Negra, his psychiatrist lover, the ghost of stripper Rita Kandilak and two mysterious melancholic ladies with light blue hair will unexpectedly travel through time to settle every unpaid bill of joy, mourning, loneliness and waiting for true love and forgiveness. Against the backdrop of Café Select, the bar Av Revoir and the legendary club Quinta, their lives will be swept away by the waters that, they say, still run rampant beneath the boardwalk.
