    A picture with Yuki

    The Gods black sense of humor appears at its best in the exact moment that human beings start believing that they are in control of their own destiny. A Bulgarian man and a Japanese woman, who have met during their immigrant, live in Canada dream to start a family and to have a child. For this reason they travel to Bulgaria in order to undergo in vitro procedures, where they are involved in car accident and unintentionally hit a child on a bike. At first the gipsy boy looks fine and refuses to be taken to a hospital. After fixing up its bike it heads home.

    On the next morning the man and woman understand that the child has died.

    Despite not being sure whether the accident has led to the boy’s death, nothing can ever be the same. A criminal inspector leading an investigation appears. The child’s parents are also introduced. Up to this point the two of them were confident that they control their destiny, however suddenly they are facing guilt and responsibility, which they might not be able to bear. In the search for a plausible catharsis and during the gradual realization of the current events, they rediscover their selves and even human nature in general, both the best and worst sides. For the first time since the start of their relationship the Bulgarian man and the Japanese woman will have to face truly significant live matters.

    Do they have the right to raise a child, when they have taken the life of another? Are they ready to confess, or are going to live in a lie? And what is what is worse? The answer to the fundamental questions – who decides when a person will be born or die, what brings to souls together – love or loneliness will lead us to an unexpected psychological denouement, bonding the destinies of two families – the one with the dead child and the other with the unborn child.
