Synopsis

Georgi is a typical schoolboy in search of an identity: lacking a guide, he ends up hanging out with the wrong people. Itso was a drug addict and is now undergoing a therapy that finds himself sinking in beers. Through them, we see post cold-war Bulgaria—its freedom, as well as its confusion.

MUBI's take

Through the contrasting paths of two brothers, this impressive debut feature observes with detail and complexity the brutal reality of a nation whose future offers little hope. This portrait of post-soviet Bulgaria is both a touching tale and an electrifying cinematic experience.
