A political-artistic satire, a “subversive fantasy film”, according to its makers, in a new black and white version, as the director wanted to shoot it at the time but the production did not allow it. The film is basically a horror parody that satirizes the socio-political conditions of the time. The crazy orthopedist Victor Papadopoulos has settled in Exarcheia. He came from the Carpathian Mountains and is a hybrid between Dr. Frankenstein and Count Dracula. He aims to carry out a paranoid project, which is creating a perfect rock band (the “Mousikes Τaxiarhies” [“Music Brigades”] , led by Tzimis Panousis), that will consist of assembled limbs of important deceased musicians. But in the end, the band comes out with a strong tendency towards the popular “laïko” genre. At the end of the film, Dimitris Poulikakos in a rock adaptation of the song "Iparho” [“I Exist"] by Stelios Kazantzidis.
