Since the collapse of the Communist regime in 1989, Bulgaria has experienced the most extreme population decline in the world. Low birth rates, high death rates, and two large waves of emigration have erased villages from Bulgaria’s map and pushed others to the verge of extinction. The film explores life in one of Bulgaria’s disappearing villages, haunted by the promises of both Communism and capitalism.
