Film synopsis:
Two Italian cousins, Mariangela and Monica, come to Greece on vacation, and on the plane – from Rome to Athens – they travel with a guy named Alkis, who pretends to be a Catholic priest, but is, in reality, carrying in his suitcase a valuable cross for a ring of smugglers. At the Airport of Elliniko, however, their luggage gets mixed up. Alkis ends up feverishly searching for his suitcase since his life itself depends on it, as the smuggler Antonio, who is waiting for the cross, threatens to kill him. He arrives on the island of Spetses where the girls are staying, who, on their side, are trying to solve the mystery of the suitcase. The two cousins don’t leave the suitcase unattended for even a moment, and Alkis devises a thousand ways to get it back. Meanwhile, the holidaymakers around them are afflicted by various problems: a director, Vasilis, wants to put on Plutus (“Wealth”) of Aristophanes, and his friend Nikos is supporting him financially with money from his older American lover; a newly-wed man who is trying to consummate his marriage; a call-girl named Margaret is looking for Mr. Right, while one of Antionio’s henchmen lies in wait for Alkis. In the end, the suitcase will by chance be consumed by fire, and Antonio and his associates will try desperate measures. Meanwhile, three new couples will emerge from all this mess and confusion: Alkis and Mariangela, Nikos and Monica and Margaret with a younger man.
