A boy from a poor Sofia neighborhood - Rado who is orphan and has committed several petty crimes - is sent to a borstal, or, to put it otherwise becomes a juvenile prisoner. Unfortunately, however, he cannot reconcile his uncomplicated pride, sense of justice with the kind of education provided by people who are more often than not deprived of sensibility and human warmth.

Sweet,sweet movie, but, for specific group of people
Well, it's not a Hollywood production, i would have never seen this movie if it wasn't for a friend of mine from Bulgarian family. So we watched it one day and frankly it's nothing blissful for the eyes but its very genuine played movie cause as far as i understood back in those days actors were playing mainly for themselves cause u know soviet union policies strictly forbade them to inport/export with the surrounding out-of-the-union world, so my word comes to that it's a real movie.Yes sir it's real and if u get into it and try to perceive all the characters u'll love that movie. But it's for specific group of people with different view and appreciation for the art. The leading role actor is very charismatic btw... It's something like the Bulgarian version of Bad Boys(1982) with Sean Penn.It's probably influenced...Bulgarian people should love that movie. peace
