Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Australia has a huge Greek immigrant population, so it is only natural that a refugee from Greece's occasional revolutions has become a political refugee there. Now a taxi-driver, Kostas (Takis Emmanuel) was formerly a journalist, an educated, passionate man who didn't always live in a seedy rooming-house. His depressing if relatively peaceful exile is given new form when he gets involved with one of his fares, Carol (Wendy Hughes), an upper-class, genteel woman, who is repulsed (and attracted) by his odd, earthy ways and his passion. In many ways, their differing cultures predispose this relationship to failure, but the attraction between the two is too great for them to remain apart for long.
