In 1943, the Jews of Greater Bulgaria are forced to adhere to Germany’s rule. The friendship of teenagers Moni (a Jewish kid from Sofia) and Giogio (the son of the Commissar for Jewish Affairs’ chauffeur) is tested when they both fall in love with Shelly, a beautiful 17-year-old Jewish girl from Greece.
A story of teenage love and friendship told against the backdrop of the Holocaust, this was Bulgaria’s submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.
