Lakis Lazopoulos, "MY BEST FRIEND"

The film tells the story of the relationship between two friends who gradually discover that they each kept secrets from the other and played dirty games behind his back. Lakis, an insurance broker in a large company, has won a trip abroad as a "bonus" for his work. He misses his flight, however, and when he returns home finds his wife in bed with his best friend. Following his mother's advice - "think for five minutes before you act" - he starts to wander around Athens and at the same time relives all his relationships through a series of comic situations.
