Steve inherits a beach on the island of Mykonos from his uncle, whom he has never met in his life. Believing that he will put an end to his problems, Steve is getting on the first plane to Mykonos, but when he arrives there he realizes that things are not as he expected them to be.

The original "foreigners" Nick Yanopoulos and Vince Colosimo whose nickname came from their movie "The foreigners" are back with the sequel, which is called “Kings of Mykonos: The foreingers 2”, which is currently a hit film in Australia.

The film made its premiere in Australia and was greeted with wild enthusiasm by the local audiences and made a turnover of nearly two million dollars. Perhaps because he carries the audience on a cruise to the beautiful Greece and Mykonos is presented as the ideal destination.
The Australian of Greek origin Nick Yanopoulos is a stand up comedian and actor who played in television and cinema productions. He became famous with the show "Foreigners without a job", which is one of the most quoted at present live shows in Australia.

The background of the film begins five years ago when Nick Yanopoulos decides to make a film about two Australians who have Mediterranean backgrounds and at some point they decide to go back to the mother land of their parents, which is Greece. And then it comes the denouement - they understand that they are much more of Australians than they have ever imagined and that the country is no longer the same as what their parents told them it is.

"This is a comedy like "what happens when you don’t swim in waters you know, "which was filmed in Greece, but does not cease to be in a unique way a typical Australian film. For this reason, and "Crocodile Dundee" was a success years ago. The "Kings of Mykonos" is talking about boys from the Western suburbs of Melbourne, which turn out to be on one of the most cosmopolitan islands in the world with their thongs and prolonged Australian accent."

Viewers thirst for good Australian comedy was demonstrated by their interest in the movie the first week of its screening. "Kings of Mykonos" is second in the ranking of the most watched films in Australia after "Robin Hood" directed by Ridley Scott and actors Cate Blanchett and Kurt Russell.
