    • Synopsis
    • In Greek, the name “Sozopolis” means “the town of salvation”. Even though this isn't directly stated, it is exactly salvation that is the main motif in this story. An aging man goes back to Sozopol and brings along his memories and ten bottles of vodka. He has to answer the questions that he has been thoroughly avoiding his whole life. Chavo has to dive into his memories and into the ten bottles of vodka, as if into the ten circles of hell, in order to try and understand what he did wrong in his life, what we did wrong in our lives, and why we finally ended up living in a desert-like world. A creature that is not from this world, much like Virgil, will accompany him in this venture – the Freak. She knows everything about Chavo and the love of his life, Neva. The Freak sends mysterious e-mails to Chavo’s friends and to Neva, who’s living in Montreal. They must all come to Sozopol and help their friend, who is in danger. The stories from the past unfold. They are humane and easy to relate to, but at the same time, filled with some sort of quiet folly. The folly to keep on believing in love and friendship, despite all the bitter disappointments and betrayals. Even despite your own unforgivable faults. The folly to keep on believing in the magical world of your childhood, because the only thing a world in which all the magic is gone deserves is to sink to the sea bed. "The Sinking of Sozopol” is not a grim story, because when Chavo finishes the last bottle of vodka, he will find the right solution. And Neva – the woman he has always loved and will always love will stay with him forever.
