Plot
A charming, romantic comedy about a vendetta that goes wrong. The story begins on the island of Crete in 1943 where pro- and anti-fascists are battling one another. One victim is Alexandros, who, after being shot by Vassilis Philipakis, dies in the arms of his wife, Maria; Maria vows vengeance on Vassilis and raises her sons and, in later years, her twin grandsons, to continue her vendetta. In the present day, Vassilis, a prosperous businessman, is spotted by some elderly Cretans in Melbourne, Australia. They alert Maria that the villain has been found and it's up to the elder grandson, Manos, to kill the fugitive. But Manos isn't the killing kind; he's a village schoolteacher, a gentle soul and the exact opposite of his brother George, a gun-toting, lazy, drunken lout. Manos arrives in Melbourne and is welcomed by Stephanos, an old family friend whose daughter Nicki, a single mother, was once in love with him; Nicki's hostile at first, but Manos manages to convince her he's a decent guy, while her teenage daughter Katerina, wonders if perhaps Manos might really be her father. While all this is going on, the vendetta takes very much a back seat. Things pick up with the unexpected arrival of George who reckons Manos will never get around to killing Vassilis and who is perfectly willing to fill the avenger role.
