First Time Godfather / Olga Malea

Brought up in California, the offspring of an important political family, 11-year-old Alex travels to Crete in order to baptize the baby of a local party boss and parliamentary candidate. He will be a First Time Godfather in order to prove to everybody and mainly to his father that he is a worthy son. His foreign looks, his difficulty with the Greek language, the peculiarities of the Cretans and the tests he has to go through in order to be accepted as a worthy son of the Leader, create a comedy with a political background, existential angst and tragicomic situations. His first baptism/initiation into the art and tricks of politics will mark him for the rest of his life.
