    • Synopsis
    • After a car accident Alex can't even remember his name. In an
      attempt to cure him from amnesia, his Bulgarian grandfather Bai Dan travels to Germany to organise a spiritual journey for his grandson, back into his past, to the country where he came from. While travelling across time and place and crossing half of Europe, they play backgammon, the simplest, and yet the most complex of all games. This game leads Alex to realise who he is, and that backgammon is the key to his backstory.
      Destiny is the dice we hold in our own hands and life is a game somewhere between chance and skill.
