Storyline

The stories of three men get tangled up in the life of the young Gipsy called Magdalena - that of the Bulgarian Lilyanin, who starts off as a fighter for brotherhood but turns into a persecutor of the Gypsies; the story of the savage Halibryamov, who knows the language of animals, but does not speak any human tongue; the story of a rich Gypsy called Kanyo who wants but does not dare to break with the lot of his kin, and story of a Frenchman in a wheelchair who comes to realize that money cannot buy everything. Magic alone can unravel this knot of destinies... And then, there is the Gypsy tale of the black swallow and how it came to be. Written by Georgi Djulgerov <georgidjul1943@gmail.com>

Excellent, incredible, unforgetable film :)))

What to say? My tears flow down, and the reality is totally mixed up with the film... (sorry, my english is not so good :(). The drama is deep and truthful, and so much pain smashes my heart. The end of the movie is so great that deepest pain is completely removed - the black swallow goes into my real world and gives me a reason to live...
