    • Synopsis
    • Mityo has lost everything that matters
      to him: his wife, his work and his
      hopes. And now he's losing the trust
      of his only son, Vasko. Out of desperation,
      Mityo agrees to smuggle illegal
      immigrants from Syria through a steep
      mountain pass into Bulgaria. One last
      trip remains. Left at the mercy of the
      Judgment Mountain, and in desperate
      need of help from his ever more distant
      son, Mityo will soon discover if he can
      be forgiven for a terrible sin committed
      25 years ago.
