Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) stars as a discouraged single woman looking for a way to reconnect with her soul and find herkefi - Greek for “mojo.”  Working as a tour guide in her native country, she leads a motley group of eccentric tourists on a dilapidated tour bus through Ancient Greece, while waiting to land her dream job.  Opening her eyes to an exotic foreign land, she soon begins to see things in a new way finding her kefiand a new romance in the process.  From director Donald Petrie (How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days), the film also stars Richard Dreyfuss (Mr. Holland’s Opus), and an international supporting cast including Alexis Georgoulis, Rachel Dratch (“Saturday Night Live,” “30 Rock”), Harland Williams (Dumb and Dumber), María Adánez, María Botto and Alistair McGowan.

Vardalos delivers a charming performance as Georgia, a recently laid-off — though anything but laid-back — history professor-turned-travel guide to a motley crew of hilariously crass tourists. Georgia is fed up and ready to give up — until her new confidant Irv (Dreyfuss) opens her eyes and heart to a simple fact: There’s no finer way for a woman to find her kefi (a.k.a. mojo) than to lose herself in the arms of the “Greek god” (Alexis Georgoulis) who’s been hiding right under her nose!
