Storyline

A border post in Bulgaria, 1954. The mind of little Michael is full of kaleidoscopic panoramas of naïve Socialism, Balkan Stalinism and the Cold War. His father is a strong lieutenant having his ideas of duty and lofty heroism. His mother in her dream of a Chanel perfume, mixes up family honor with the pink wings of her youth, locked up in the barracks. The happy saga of people fulfilling their duty to their country is suddenly overshadowed by the emergence of a saboteur and a series of tragic events. The dramatic comedy unfolds in self-irony and fateful tragedy. Everyone is clinging to their grotesque existence over the abyss, without realizing what is happening just inches from the ground.
