Screenplay: Tonislav Hristov
Running time: 62 min
A film about the effort of one man who strives to overcome the value systems affecting the outcasts of our society. The action takes place at Kazichene prison in Bulgaria. Kalin, the jail warden, thinks it’s worth fighting to win over the souls of those enduring the less than favourable conditions of the Bulgarian correctional system. He doesn’t judge his ‘clientele’; he only tries to draw out and encourage their hidden talents – unrecognised even by their closest family.
His goal? To save at least one of every 100 people out of the gutter.
