One of the more humanistic comedies from Thanasis Veggos highlights the cruel reception endured by Greek migrants from the new establishment of the dictatorship in Greece.

A Greek gastarbeiter (guest worker) arrives home from Germany to his native Greek village to visit his dying father. The thing is, he has returned illegally, and two advertising firms jump on this predicament as an opportunity to make money. 

A film that presents issues as salient today as when they occurred over 40 years ago.
