Thanassis Koukouras, the tireless owner of a traditional coffee shop and a grizzled paterfamilias, has always had--and always will have--the intense and passionate yearning of becoming a respectable and impartial judge. However, as fate would have it, Thanassis is stuck in a passionless career which has only one benefit: he gets to be the magistrate in his very own court of law. But, soon, having sacrificed everything for the sake of his two children, the indefatigable breadwinner will have to face an unforeseen complication, and the most difficult case in his career. Now, can Thanassis bring his son and daughter back to the right track? Written by Nick Riganas
