Mortar & Pestle Synopsis:
“I’ve just been laid-off. Well... fired!” declares our hero, depressed and unhappy.
Lucky for him his Greek-Canadian wife packs him off to Greece to find his Kefi and spend time with her relatives, and discover that happiness is but a state-of-mind. He has two excellent meals, he visits ancient sites, and has a mystical experience with an ancient god. He dances in a field of wild-flowers, and he eventually finds a mysterious mortar & pestle that is meant to cure all his ills. Does he really regain his joie de vivre? Possibly. But he certainly remembers to greet his everyday concerns with a big smile and a ready-for-anything attitude.
