The family business of master tailor is on the verge of ruin. His father is in the hospital and foreclosure seems inevitable. But Nikos' need makes him inventive. He builds a mobile sales stand and tries again to sell his suits to the people. Then he comes across a much more lucrative market: bridal fashion. As a trained men's tailor, however, he doesn't understand anything about it. Only with the help of his neighbor Olga is there any hope of saving his shop. And more is developing between the two, even if Olga is already married.
