The first 3D animation movie produced in Greece presents the ultimate symbol of Greek folklore and tradition Karagiozis, and welcomes us to his universe Karagiozis: the movie. He’s poor but optimistic, funny with sarcastic humour, clever and simple, he enjoys socialising and interacting with his fellow villagers, and now he becomes Public Secretary (!). Funny dialogues, upheavals, traditional Greek music and scenery form a unique mosaic of laughter, emotions, rhythm, joy and a hero full of energy, who will guide us to his world! The Commander decides to appoint a public secretary to serve the citizens, since his employees are forced to neglect their work, in order to serve the illiterate people of the region for their literacy needs. Hadjiavatis undertakes the duty to find the right person, until he meets Karagiozis, who mentors him for his grammar knowledge. The hero hilariously accepts the post, after impressing the Commander with his qualifications.

The film is a co-production with Cosmote TV.
