Main Program

Papadopoulos & Sons / Marcus Markou

Harry Papadopoulos has got it all: a mansion and a super rich lifestyle. But when the financial crisis hits, Harry and his family lose everything. Everything except the forgotten “Three Brothers Fish & Chip Shop,” half owned by Harry’s larger-than-life brother Spyros, who’s been estranged from the family for years. With no alternative, Harry and his family reluctantly join “uncle” Spyros to live above the neglected shop. Together, they set about bringing the chip shop back to life under the gaze of their old rival, Hassan, from the neighboring Turkish kebab shop. The chip shop is revived, old memories are stirred and Harry discovers that only when you lose everything can you be free to find it all.
