Film synopsis:
Cinematic adaptation of the homonymous play by Gialamas- Pretenteris. The emir Avdourachman of Keibout- Kampir arrives incognito in Greece, not only for vacation but also to meet his son, prince Abdoulah who is studying at the University and at the same time works for the Revolutionary Movement of his country for his father’s dethronement. At Mont Parnes hotel, where the emir will resort, the Greek company Arpa Kolla Film is shooting a movie and an extra, Antreas, playing the role of a lieutenant, meets the half-Greek Gioulinar, emir’s daughter who thinks that Andreas is actually a navy officer, sent by the government to escort her. Naturally, they fall in love with each other, but the fact that he has the same name with a junior lieutenant, leads him to jail. Three months later, his friend Fifis takes Andreas to the cabaret Keimpout-Kamir, owned by the emir Avdourachman, after his dethronement by the Revolutionary Movement and the loss of his power. Andreas confesses the truth to Gioulinar who really loves him and doesn’t mind him being a poor extra.
