    • Synopsis
    • A dramatic documentary about both the dark and the bright sides of the genius; about the ups and downs of a Bulgarian winner, who is a last-ditcher by nature; about the mission to be a leader, taking the lead in crucial moments; about the real events and the myths; about national self-confidence and national nihilism.
      This film is a confession with no awkward questions, evasive answers or hidden truths. The work is as relentless in its straightforwardness as Stoichkov’s lethal left-footed shot.
