Storyline

A small and stubborn Bulgarian village facing the Turkish border has been resisting foreign invaders since the times of the Roman and Ottoman Empires. Now its electorate of 38 elderly Bulgarians is deciding on future of Europe. The Great Gate, as the village has been called for centuries because of its location on the doorsteps of the former Ottoman Empire, has found itself in the middle of European crisis, as at night asylum seekers sneak across the border causing fear and unrest. Once again the sleepy and forgotten village has become the most important secret loophole of Europe. Postman Ivan has a new political vision. He decides to run for mayor to bring the dying village to life by welcoming refugees. His opponents want either to close their eyes or close down the border and reintroduce communism. Busy on the campaign trail while delivering the mail, Ivan soon learns that while good intentions are not enough, even the smallest deeds matter. Written by Kaarle Aho

With selfishness and meanness bombarding us in media, it is reassuring to be reminded that magnanimity always acts as a counterbalance. This Bulgarian gem's title is well chosen. The postman is a good man. As one of his poverty-stricken neighbors observes, the measure of a man is his goodness. It is also fitting measure of this movie.
