We're in post-production on The Light Touch, a Woody-Allen-style comedy amid the beauties of Athens.

"A pickpocket falls in love with a pianist who leads her on a chase through the city, with the police right behind them." 

(Here is a preview, and there are more photos on IMDb.)

Sexy puckish pickpocket Becky, a Bugs Bunny of a girl (Tess Spentzosreel) 
—is teasing a wallet out of a purse on an Athens metro when she notices Miranda, a sensitive beauty out of "The Princess and the Pea" (Skyrah Archerreel), and falls in love. Miranda escapes her, Becky escapes the purse-owner, and the chase is on.
Oops, Becky steals the wallet of a policeman on vacation, her Elmer Fudd, and he’s obsessed with catching her. “My name is Wesley Stankovitch! I don’t care if it doesn’t sound British, I am a police detective with New Scotland Yard—No! I’m on vacation! My pocket has just been picked and I have a photograph of the culprit! Now can I have some men over here!” Duncan Skinnerreel.
They send him a policewomanDespina Miroureel
whose captain, Georgia Siakavarareel, distrusts her, especially when she gets pregnant on the job.
