Next Generation

The film tells the story of the heroic people who rescued the entire Jewish population of Bulgaria during World War II and, because of their actions, offered a chance to the next generations. This is not a historical movie, but rather an emotional journey for the direct descendants of the local survivors, who are looking for their family roots and long-lost ties with their father’s homeland while revealing little-known aspects of the history of Bulgaria during World War II.
