Storyline

Secretly in love with the neighbourhood's corner-shop owner--the vertically challenged, Nikos, aka The Giant--the high-spirited housemaid and talented amateur singer, Zabeta, fights for his attention, dreaming of walking down the aisle with him. Unfortunately, Nikos only has eyes for the block's statuesque and beautiful diva, Clara, who is also interested in the area's local playboy, Alekos. Against the backdrop of desperate and unrequited loves, things will take a turn for the unexpected, when Zabeta meets in person the popular composer and singer, Giorgos Zambetas, who believes in her, and decides to give her a chance. Now, Zabeta finally has the upper hand. Will her dream come true? Written by Nick Riganas
