Andreas Katsimitsoulias directed this Nestor Matsas reworking of the standard "wrong side of the tracks" romance, then flooding the Greek cinema, into a courtroom drama. A young boy (Vassilakis Kailas) is arrested for spying in the public prosecutor's garden. The boy's mother Martha (Elda Athanassaki) testifies in court that she is actually the prosecutor's daughter, but had been forced to leave home when her father would not approve of her relationship with a poor doctor named Dimitris (Errikos Briolas) who helped her following an automobile accident, fathered her child, and later deserted her after she developed amnesia. The young defendant only wanted to see his grandfather, it turns out, and is found not guilty. The cloyingly happy ending has the abashed prosecutor (Lykourgos Kallergis) accepting his daughter, grandson, and (most implausibly) Dimitris, who decides to return to his family during the proceedings. As Me Krinoun I Enorki is filled with veteran character actors like Theodoros Moridis, Kostas Papachristos, and the omnipresent Lavrentis Dianellos.
