The form of the traditional feature film gets subverted in this experimental comedy divided into two parts, written and directed by different filmmakers.
Both parts have one thing in common: an average fellow is forced to make his own personal revolution against oppressive dictatorship to protect his friends from being arrested and tortured.
In part one, this all takes place during the 1936 Metaxas dictatorship where Veggos plays a clown to cover the resistance of his young colleague against the police state. In the second part, we’re taken to the 1967 Colonel dictatorship and its absurd policies.
