Central characters of the story are two middle-aged sisters, who in their youth vindicated the same man. The most unscrupulous managed to win him, using the pretext of an early pregnancy while the other remained an old maid. The male apple of discord is proved a bad husband and indifferent head of the family, and the two daughters as they are coming of age, enter the same circle of dependence and oppression where they were found before them their mother and aunt. The one will be connected with a married man, will stay pregnant and will be forced to make an abortion while the other will be forced to marry the lover of her mother, 25 years older than she was causing her aversion. The play sketches out the mental dead end of woman in the little-bourgeois classes of Greek society and points out the mechanisms of dependence and oppression of woman in the context of the native family life.
