Olga Malea, "RISOTTO"

Eugenia is a photographer and Vicky a stylist. Both are married with children. They live a continually stressed out existence trying to cope with careers, sex and kids. Their husbands, Philippos and Manolis love them out but unfortunately...

Result: they fight constantly and in the end they alla take it out on the kids. Vicky and Eugenia are forced to join forces in order to cut it. So, with their children they find themselves living in the same house. To their surprice they discover that their life becomes easier and their relationship with their kids improves. Philippos and Manolis, however, react immediately to this new situation. Along the way, however, things get mixed up on all levels and most of all... the erotic.
