The villagers on the small Greek island of Naxos take pride in stealing from each other just for fun in this offbeat crime comedy. The local priest and the police do their best to discourage the activity that has become a time-honored tradition and a source of pride among the felonious. When the most respected thief of the village dies, his sons vow to marry off their sister Megla to the man who can prove his mettle as the new king of the thieves. When the couple is married, they are chased by the police and actually consider becoming law-abiding citizens.
