During an early summer rainstorm in Sozopol on the Black Sea, a man arrives in the historic old town. He had brought with him ten bottles of vodka to drown his blues. That Sozopol has little in common with the present-day tourist hub with dozens of hotels, pubs and shops invaded by crowds of tourists. This Sozopol has a quiet vista of the sea -- at times peaceful or rough, with glimmering depths and clean beaches: plus an old wooden house harbouring painful memories. Can this place heal the wounds of the past and become a source of hope for the future?
