One pilot. One poet. One flight attendant. An enchanted television tower. Two professors. Two Olympic champions. Two collectors of imported chocolate wrappers. The number of actors - 8 mil-lion. A little over 30 years has passed since the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of the Soviet re-gime that kept the Bulgaria people in bondage. In this film, a multitude of funny and sad stories are told through endearing human portraits conducted in cinematic conversations about an era that we should not forget.
