Synopsis: In the midst of his crumbling reality, Yavor, the youngest inhabitant of a small Bulgarian village, dreams of another world - a world of possibilities. His everyday life is a perpetual cycle of preparing his mother’s pub for the same people to come in the evening only to make them leave and clean after them. Yavor has a stable life - he has a family, a job, people to look up to - but he does not have his own path in life. His stability means to live the same day over and over again and he dreams of the limitless world outside the borders of his village. But one can only make their dreams come true on their own. They only need a little push.
