Greek filmmaker Nikos Avrameas wrote and directed this standard tale of a factory owner's son (Yiorgos Kambanellis) who falls in love with a female employee (Martha Vourtsi). In typically melodramatic style, the father objects, the girl's mother dies, and the girl is placed in a sanatorium while the boy takes a bride (Eleni Kriti) who meets with his father's approval. She's a wealthy flit, of course, so he finally comes to his senses (as does his father) and is reunited with his true love. This crushingly pedestrian and stereotypical film needs only one element to make it even more indistinguishable from dozens of other similar Greek productions, and receives it in the form of an obligatory appearance by the ubiquitous Lavrentis Dianellos.
