My Life in Ruins Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Georgia ([[Performer~P303789~Nia Vardalos~niavardalos]]) came to Greece to follow a man. A few years later, she's been cast aside -- alone and adrift in a foreign land. Eventually, her passion for history leads her to a job as a tour guide. But Georgia is bored, and has lost her "kefi" (Greek for mojo) to boot. When taciturn sasquatch Poupi ([[Performer~P353434~Alexis Georgoulis~alexisgeorgoulis]]) replaces the regular driver at the last minute, the frazzled tour guide thinks that her luck has just hit rock bottom. Thankfully, Georgia's latest batch of tourists is a more lively bunch than she's anticipated, and in between bouts with rival tour guide Nico ([[Performer~P373401~Alistair McGowan~alistairmcgowan]]), she manages to form a genuine connection with wisecracking widower Irv ([[Performer~P88268~Richard Dreyfuss~richarddreyfuss]]), a solo vacationer who maintains a jovial facade despite the fact that he misses his late wife dearly. With a little help from Irv, Georgia comes to realize that true love may be closer than she thinks -- if she could just recapture her kefi and open her eyes. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
