Storyline

Total corruption and sky-high crime are among the most obvious signs of post-totalitarian reality in Bulgaria. Gangsters and politicians are hastily making vast fortunes in a market economy under the law of the jungle where straight civil servants are few and far between. One of them is Rado, an Anti-Mafia Corps captain. He has a beautiful wife and a loving 7-year old daughter. One day Rado finds out that the wife has a lover, and his boss is on the Mafia payroll.

Brilliant Film
28 February 2011 | by axebgSee all my reviews

Heavy drama, which will leave a deep scar in every Bulgarian soul who sees it. A masterpiece, combined with brilliant play from the main characters, especially the little girl (Kalina Donkova) - according to me a rising star. The film (Mini-Series) is very touching because it represents not far and definitely not forgotten history in Bulgaria - after breaking the totalitarianism. When ordinary people must fight the crime alone, surrounded by street trash, drugs, illegal money, prostitution, corrupted high-posted politicians. A time of great sorrow, poorness, despair, very low morale and still people could find the good in their hearts to move on... Watching this film strikes me deeply because it was and in some way still is a total reality. With exception of some scenes this film should be in Documentary category!!!

I recommend it to everyone above 16.
