    • Synopsis
    • “The Judgment” is a story about Mityo and his son Vasko. For 25 years Mityo has lived with a terrible secret: as a soldier on the Bulgarian border, he was forced to kill a couple that tried to escape to the West. Nowadays, father and son live in a small and poor village in Bulgaria, located close to the border with Turkey and Greece. Mityo is on the border again, this time smuggling immigrants to the EU. He lost everything that mattered to him – his wife, his work and the confidence of his son. To get Vasko back, Mityo has to face the past and pay for an old but still burning sin. In order to get his son back, Mityo has to seek forgiveness for his sin.
