Viktoria
Filmfest 2014

On 10 November, 1979 – 10 years before the collapse of Communism in Europe, Boryana is determined not to give birth to a child in Communist Bulgaria. The only thing Boryana longs for is to escape to the West. But despite her attempt to protect herself from unwanted pregnancy, her baby survives... Unwanted, Viktoria is born with no umbilical cord to connect her to her mother and thus proclaimed "the baby of the decade". Viktoria becomes a symbol of Communist Bulgaria. While growing up, she dominates her environment and is at subconscious war with her mother – the one person who didn't want her. But on November 10th, 1989, when the political system collapses, turning Viktoria's life upside down, the hardships of the new times bind her and her mother together.
