The finest traditions of road movies and romantic comedies marry in this chaotic example of how things can…just happen.

Babis’ (Odysseas Papaspiliopoulos) life is thrown into chaos after the beautiful Athena (Zeta Makrypoulia) comes crashing in on one eventful evening. With everything in ruins, the two take to the road where their adventures become entwined with Eva (Anna-Maria Papaharalambous), a woman who has run away from home. 

Babis, Athena and Eva’a journey comes filled with twists, turns, quirky characters and surprises at every point – including a piano filled with hidden treasure, a fortune in search of an heir, a faithless fiancée, the police, a mysterious monastery and a couple of bullseyes from Cupid’s arrows.

Written and directed by stalwart of Greek television and feature film Nikos Zapatinas, Out Of The Blue doesn’t fail to warm the heart and leave a big smile on the face.
