Mihalis Kakogiannis – Kyriakatiko xypnima AKA Windfall in Athens (1956)

Synopsis:
‘On a lazy Athenian morning of a warm summer Sunday, Mina, a young and fresh saleswoman, decides to go for a splash, only to have her chronically empty purse stolen–and with it–a soon-to-be winning lottery ticket.

Of course, Mina wants her robbed luck back; however, what if fortune and the impatient god of desire, Cupid, are already on her doorstep?’
