This amusing Greek farce was adapted for the screen by Nikos Tsiforos and Polyvios Vassiliadis from their successful stage play, and winningly directed by Yiorgos Skalenakis. Dimitris Papamichael plays Dimitris, who is anxiously awaiting the arrival of his boss (Yiannis Michalopoulos) for dinner, as an impressive evening just might help him become deputy director of the company for which he works. Unfortunately, Dimitris' wife Nina (Aliki Vouyouklaki) -- having never been introduced to her husband's employer -- had a fight with him over a taxicab earlier the same day. In order to minimize the potential damage, Dimitris has Nina pretend to be the family maid, and introduces the real maid (Maria Konstandarou) as his wife. Naturally, as the evening progresses, Dimitris' boss begins warming up to his former enemy, not realizing that she is, in reality, already married. The resultant complications are inevitably resolved, but not before a good deal of wonderfully funny confusion.
