TRIBUTE TO NIKOS PERAKIS’ COMEDIES

Synopsis: A Turkish yacht puts three illegal immigrants and castaways ashore on a little Greek island. Apart from the crew, there are three women on board, two of them beauty contestants and a former winner, as well as a reporter and a cameraman from the Turkish network that organizes the annual event. The six Greek soldiers stationed there force the crew and passengers to disembark and impound the yacht.
