Poster of the film


A charming, romantic comedy about a vendetta that goes wrong. In the present day, Vassilis, a prosperous businessman, is spotted by some elderly Cretans in Melbourne, Australia. Manos isn't the killling kind. He is a village schoolteacher, a gentle soul and the exact opposite of his brother George, a gun-toting, lazy, drunken lout. Things pick up with the unexpected arrival of George who reckons Manos will never get around to killing Vassilis and who is perfectly willing to fill the avenger role.
