Small-town Bulgaria. A mother and her two daughters are struggling to survive. The dreamy and easily-distracted younger daughter likes to invent stories to make life more interesting. Unwittingly, she eventually gets caught by her own lies and shatters her older sister’s well-ordered materialistic world. Struggling to get to the bottom of things, the two sisters find out the truth about their mother. (photo credits: Tamasa Distribution)
