When help from Heaven comes in form of an impressive woman
6 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The film hero is an office lower employee, whose salary is too low to allow him to marry his beloved and very patient girlfriend. While he was collecting his courage to ask for a raise, he received a telegram from his mother, informing him that she needed his financial support in order to undergo surgery. Desperate to help his mother, he turned to everybody he knew asking for a loan, and ended up at his cousin's cabaret. There, the cousin was in trouble, because one of his performers (a Latin-American beauty by the name of Chikita)was about to be deported from Greece before their contract was over. So, he had to find a poor,unmarried,Greek guy to marry Chikita- and there was the needy cousin!
