Storyline

At the airport, Slavi tells his life's story to a young customs officer. As children, Nelly promises Slavi to marry him. The two teenagers are passionately in love with each other but after some time Nelly falls in love with another guy. Slavi takes up drinking and gets into trouble with the Bulgarian militia (police) because of his family background. This is when he decides to defect to the West. After staying at a refugee camp in Austria and another desperate love, he sets out to the United States. There Slavi makes some new friends who help him buy a truck. He hits the roads of America, where he comes across an Indian who sells him an arrow. The vender tells him this amulet will bring his love back. Eventually, Slavi comes back to Bulgaria, where communism has collapsed. His beloved Nelly lives alone with her daughter. One day Slavi meets her again...

Movie about Love, life, sacrifices and the human strength!
3 March 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I couldn't agree more with the other comment. This movie is worth watching. I might not have lived in those times but to some extent it also has much to do with people getting away nowadays as well. Maybe not the same harshness or the same difficulties, but the inner battle, emotions and sacrifices are the same. Circumstances from which people are running away are also very different, nothing about war time, not literary at least. Just watch it and you will understand what Im trying to say, or at least how I see it. It s movie to think about. I loved it. It made me cry, but it also made me think.

If you are up for a fun, relaxing movie, thats not the one!
