Storyline

The intricate relations between an Artist, an Actress and a Poet are seen against the background of one of the most dramatic events in the recent history of Bulgaria: uprising, which broke out in 1923. Plainclothesmen murder the Poet because his verses are marked by individualist rebellion. The Artist loses his best friend and at this point of realistic first half of the film comes to the end. The second half develops on a metaphorical and fantastic level. After his meeting with the peasant Danil who has gone crazy, the Artist's illusion that art can be separate from life crumbles. He sees the rapid crushing of uprising and the suffering of the people with fearsome force and clarity.
