First Time Godfather

Synopsis: Brought up in California, offspring of an important political family, 11 year old Alex travels to Crete in order to baptize the baby child of a local cacique and parliamentary candidate. He will be a GODFATHER FOR THE FIRST TIME in order to prove to everybody and mainly to his father that he is a worthy son. His foreign looks, his difficulty with Greek language, the Cretan's particularities and the tests he has to go through in order to be accepted as a worthy son of the Leader, create a comedy with a political background, existential distresses and tragicomic situations.

- It shouldn't happen.

What?

The baptism.

When will we collect the votes?

If our Chief was here,

it would be a piece of cake.

But what can we do

with the little one?

What can I say?

Let's postpone it.

And what do we do with the boy?

He'll stay here for a a wee bit,

and then go back.

They said for you

to go back.

Go back.

Come downstairs... food.

What's he doing?

You think I know?

It's what politicians' sons do.

Practice every spare moment.

Instead of saying their prayers

at night, they make speeches.

You think so?

This one was born

to be a politician.

You should see this, Panago...

you who can't even

make up a couplet.

What where you doing

on the balcony?

He was practising. Right?

Practice?

Listen, boy...

this is no ordinary baptism.

It's to bring democracy

to this hard-fought land.

That's why we want

to postpone it... have it later.

My father said that

I've got to be the Godfather.

And you can say all this?

I'm little but strong.

He'll do fine.

He's little but strong,

he'll be a great Godfather.

Right, husband?

Whatever we had planned

for your father, you'll do.

I'll make you look better

than your father. Really.

Let me tell you a few things

before we start the day.

Because today and tomorrow

are two very important days.

You understand?

For the baptism?

For democracy.

Today we'll visit

two families...

...the Fountedakis,

and the Manedakis.

They're not supporting

our party...

...but you're here

to win them over.

We need both families

tomorrow with us.

Tomorrow, when we

march in the square...

...we need both families.

That's the only way to get

our 150 votes.

We need this many votes

to get elected.

That's right!

You have to greet everyone.

And double greet them.

You know how? Your hand.
