A 16-old girl runs away from a dangerous man and gets into a faraway village near the border. Soon she finds out the only inhabitants there - nine old men and women - make their living by growing marijuana and the village is actually an illegal plantation belonging to the man she runs away from. However, she decides to stay there and nothing remains the same. A girl is afraid of her past, both disgusting and attracting her. She is afraid of her present, both suffocating her and giving her wings. And she is afraid of the future as it projects both her nightmares and her dreams. This film is about the only 'bullet against fear' - love.Written by

This is a film which definitely makes an intelligent audience think. Beginning with its title, and on to its mysterious locations, characters and situations, this is a wonderful film addressing issues pertinent to all generations, and any culture. The script, the acting (particularly the village dwellers), and the art direction are especially outstanding and creative.
As a bonus, the movie provides an opportunity to view a seldom-seen national cinema (at least in the West), namely Bulgarian cinema. Besides the film itself which will leave you thinking for a long while, after watching this, you may wonder what other pearls like this one from Bulgaria remain unseen by other audiences, and why?
