    • Synopsis
    • After serving a short sentence in a North London prison, Belyata has no choice but to return to his provincial hometown in post-communist Bulgaria. In a desperate attempt to reconnect with his sister, the only remaining living member of his family, he embarks on a violent journey to save her from a local extortion gang lead by a corrupt cop.

      This stunning debut is a powerful yet brutal tale of a lost soul’s quest for revenge and redemption, lead by an exceptional performance by Georgi Naldzhiev as a man so hungry for justice that is drawn into actions with irreversible consequences.
