Two adventurers, JOANNE (female 21, American) and PATRICE (male 24, French), leave their perfectly cozy lives to travel "to the East" until either they find a reason to go back, or disappear from modern comfort forever. Soon after they accidentally find themselves in Bulgaria in the deep forests of the Rodopi Mountains and are invited to stay in the house of a mysterious old man, PETER (90).
As if in a fairy-tale dream, Peter relates to them the memories from his amazing life as a travelling dancer, and the dramatic love story in which the mythical nymphs of the mountain help him save his beloved wife KALINA (18) by turning her into a nymph as well. The myth says Peter can be with her again when he completes a ritual and let go of everything that matters most to him.
Joanne and Patrice are not only drawn in by the story, but begin to participate in it. The three embark on an extraordinary magical experience that leads them to find the true purposes of their lives.Title in Bulgarian: Divi Yagodi
