Georgi (Ovanes Torosian) is a typical schoolboy in search of some identity and--being lack of guide, ends up hanging out with the wrong people. Itso (Christo Christov) was a drug addict now undergoing a therapy who finds himself sinking in beers. Through them, we see post cold-war Bulgaria--its freedom, as well as its confusion.Written by
Writer/Director Kamen Kalev was inspired by the life of his friend Christo Christov, who plays himself in the film, with the locations comprised of places from Christov's life, such as his actual apartment and the workshop he worked at. See more »
In the restaurant scene where Itso and his girlfriend order, Itso orders a Swedish beer but we see him drinking Shumensko, which in fact is a Bulgarian beer. See more »

This is the most honest Bulgarian movie made in the last 20 years. Bravo Itso, Kamen and the rest of the team! It is a movie that resonates on the same wave as the contemporary BG people. It shows the heart...and the really important things in life - hope, love, tolerance, dialogue, the continuity between the generations and freedom - the choice to live your life as you want and to be its real master... Well, it is difficult for me to come up with 10 lines for this movie (as the guidelines indicate) since this is a movie that needs to be seen coz it is a movie to be felt...because it is simple and that's why it is a work of genius!!! It's absolutely worth seeing!
