Somewhere in Athens at a cramped but cosy grocery store, a kind but outspoken assistant, Zikos, and his well-off grizzled boss, Mr Pandelis, fall unexpectedly head over heels in love with their fresh and beautiful neighbours. In high hopes of finally settling down, both employer and employee will start making plans for a bright future; however, little do they know that their dear little darlings only have eyes for others. Soon, an ambitious plan and a big announcement of a joyous event will be blemished with the unforeseen and utterly disheartening appearance of the girls' true sweethearts; after all, love always finds its way.

Maybe the best Greek comedy with good actors and also one of the best Greek comedian who called hajihristos.Out of our borders is not famous inside of our borders it was one of the best comedian.i think that the movie "ths kakomoiras"the hole movie depends on the talent of hajihristos so good dialogue and an extremely good performance from the actors and actresses.Those past days it was the "golden age""of Greek cinema and i hope to see the resurrection of our cinema.We have the talent,we have good movie makers only we need it is the "big"producer .Finally for this movie, so pity for non Greek so good for greeks because the movie it is only for greeks!
