This Greek-Bulgarian-Cypriot co-production depicts the plight of Albanian illegals in Athens and its Piraeus port. Greek intellectual Christos (Akis Sakellariou) unintentionally falls in with a streetwise group of manipulative Albanian scam artists, including Victor (Armando Dauti) and Fuad (Muzafer Et' Hem Zifla). Minus papers, they are nevertheless successfully able to get by in Greece. Eventually, Christos takes a trip to the Albanian village where the duo grew up amid murderous blood feuds. Shown at the 1997 Thessaloniki Film Festival.
