Vassil is a documentary filmmaker who has not achieved the dream success. Leaving his own family behind, he puts all of his energy into his new film, which tells the story of a broken relationship between a monk and his mother. When he learns that the monk is in psychiatry and that his mother will undergo cancer surgery, he decides that he must collect them to make an emotional finale to his film.
« Through my documentaries, I have always strived to reach the inner world of my characters, to show the human being as a complex image, full of contradictions. It has always been very difficult for me to decide whether to reveal something intimate about the character that is in danger of hurting him, but on the other hand to make the film more exciting. Somehow, naturally, I decided to talk about these dilemmas through the conventions of the feature film. » (Svetoslav Draganov, réalisateur du film)
