Storyline

Perpetually penniless but always with a big smile on his face, the graceful tap-dancer and carefree young Casanova, Villar, sets off for work at the local wet-cleaning shop. However, under the cloudless morning sky, a chance encounter with a lithe Athenian belle will pave the way for a delightfully entertaining, wonderfully effervescent urban romance, in the bosom of the merry and bustling with people mid-1920s capital. And, just like that, intent on winning the heart of the charming brunette, Villar embarks on a fascinating journey of love throughout Athens, from the centre's wide avenues and the majestic Temple of Olympian Zeus to sandy coastal Athens, and of course, to the Odeon of Herodes Atticus and timeless Acropolis. There, in the shadow of the sacred rock, an extravagant banquet awaits; nevertheless, Villar loves only one woman. Will a passionate kiss on the lips prove his true feelings for her?
