Eleni, who was raised in Greece but lived with her aunt Martha's family in Martin, Tennessee met Demetrios who was living and working with his father in the Greek village of Ano Ravenia. While she was on holiday, they fell in love and married. This observational film follows this Greek-American wedding day in the manner of a home movie shot by professional filmmakers. Delimited, natural, and spontaneous, the film reveals the American influence on Greek culture through behaviors, attitudes, and language.
