Illegal immigrant Mustafa arrives in Limassol during the carnival thinking that he is in Italy. Six days of a crazy chase and misunderstandings by the locals follow. He picks up the tab for two Bulgarian illegal immigrants and fall in love with the beautiful Anna. A group of youths frees the baboon and ostrich from the city's zoo. The major's jacket changes owners and winds up in Mustafa's possession. Old Nicholas, the rag collector, resists the mayor's plans to evict him from the old bus. All the parallel stories that sometimes converge and sometimes diverge lead to the climax: Mustafa is taken for the escaped baboon. After all this he decides that he doesn't like living abroad after all.
