Expelled from an Athens psychiatric hospital for his radically new methods, Athos Gavrion returns to Salonika, his native city, to open a clinic that uses self-hypnosis, electronic mirrors, and blue laser light. Aglaia Chryseis. a student of ancient Greek mythology, becomes interested in the new system and becomes an assistant to Athos.
Her father, a seabed industry magnate, arranges to hire a former police undercover agent who infiltrates as a patient to incriminate the clinic and separate Aglaia from Athos.
But the spy, Despina Ilia is also converted and becomes a second therapeutic assistant. Paris Xantus, a beginning screenwriter, suffering writer's block receives successful therapy. His grandfather, the main movie tycoon in Salonika, protects his grandson as more promising than the father of Paris. a famous film director.
The father of Aglaia schemes and plots to raid and destroy the clinic, allying with the medical association, then with the Salonika police. His daughter brings ancient mythology analysis into the new mirror-based psychiatry of Dr. Gavrion.
