19th century. Bulgaria is buried in the darkness of Ottoman rule. The most worthy of the sons of ruined Bulgaria will rise from its ashes to pave the way for liberty – alone, through faithlessness and despair, through betrayal and sacrifice, even through love.
Vasil Ivanov Kunchev.
The one who is known today in Bulgaria as the Apostle of Freedom!
Director Maxim Genchev takes us through his life as in saint’s biography - from his childhood, through the fight and to the gallows.
Magic historicism and fiction intertwine with nearly documentary stylistics.
