Private Project

The Lost Plains

Writer Martin Sestrimsky and Boyan Tillev, officer from the State Security Service, are long-standing acquaintances from the day Martin handed over a special folder to Boyan. Subsequently, this slander will bring about long-term consequences, which the writer tries to overcome. In the vortex of changes following the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe, the relationship between Sestrimsky and Tillev takes a new direction. It is provoked by Tillev’s step-daughter – Nevena, a young woman of an obscure double identity. While Tillev is getting increasingly richer owing to his shady deals, Sestrimsky is attempting to make peace with his past with Nevena’s assistance. To come clean, however, he has to acknowledge his own sins, helping Nevena at the same time to grasp the truth about her life and relations. Sestrimsky will accomplish this by becoming the hero of his own novel about his father’s fate and suffering, for which he himself has a substantial contribution. At the end, Sestrimsky and Tillev will arrive at the truth about their past, which they have been concealing for such a long time.
