Sophie and Daneel, both in their early thirties, are a close and passionate couple living in Paris. Sophie initiates a surprise journey to Bulgaria. Daneel explicitly refuses to go, but Sophie insists and finally convinces him to leave. When they arrive, Sophie discovers that Daneel was born there...
After a few hours spent on the crowded beaches, Daneel leads Sophie to an almost abandoned island lost in the Black Sea. Once there, Daneel discovers pregnancy tests in Sophie’s luggage. The heat and the strange few inhabitants soon alter their own behaviors, and the island slowly reveals hidden fears that question their love. To get through it all, they have to take a leap into the unknown...
Director's Statement
My desire is to trace a deep human transformation, in which the main hero experiences disintegration of his singular point of view and sense of personality. He realizes how what we define as the I is constructed, and as a result, the boundaries that describe it disappear automatically. It’s as if Daneel dies, so that a new human being is born, one that starts living without fear or tension. He discovers the joy of life as it is – unfathomable and in a constant state of change. He ceases to search, to ask questions, to be somebody and transforms into a unique and exceptionally charismatic personage. He enthralls everyone with his sincerety and spontaneity. This new man inspires. -Kamen Kalev
