Kosmas Kalogiannis, a superstitious civil engineer, is convinced in the existence of the evil eye--the malevolent glare which brings disaster and misfortune to the unaware and the unprotected. All sorts of mystic lucky charms and exotic Nazar amulets are not enough when it comes to venturing out on a dreaded Tuesday the 13th; however, a surprising and rather unwelcome visit by Kosmas' impoverished old friend, Sotiris, will soon help him change his mind. Suddenly, a chain of bizarrely perfect and utterly extraordinary coincidences will completely persuade Kosmas that Sotiris is--beyond a shadow of a doubt--his invaluable mascot; nevertheless, is this long-lost companion truly indispensable?

One day, an old schoolmate suddenly shows up in the contractor's house. He is broke, hungry and unemployed, despite the fact that he used to be the best student in their class.
