Pause synopsis

Elpida, a middle-aged housewife, is trapped in the misery of an oppressive marriage, with a man who has no consideration for her feelings and needs. Her monotonous life is disrupted when a young painter is employed to paint the building, she lives in. Her imagination then starts to flourish as she is confronted with her unquenchable desires, her body and the husband she has no love for. When things get out of hand, she finds refuge in a fantasy world of vindictive violence. Soon, her perception of reality is questioned when she has no recollection of events that actually happened. Can a pause mark a new beginning?
