THE PETROV FILE

During the last years of the communist regime in Bulgaria, stage actor Alexander Petrov is banned from playing for no apparent reasons. When he reappears, after the fall of the regime, he discovers that he had been denounced by the man, he admired most, his master and friend. These facts are disclosed at the very moment that he has to deliver a speech about him at his funeral. Devastated, Petrov declares that he is giving up his public life. This is when Markov, an old acquaintance but also a former director of the Secret Services, turned into a successful businessman, offers his help. In the mid-1990s, the country is whirling into wild capitalism, dreadful violence and turf wars. Markov, an admirer of Petrov’s stage talents, offers him to become the head figure of a new political party struggling to rescue a torn apart country.
