The film depicts the life of a lonely beekeeper living in the abandoned village of Debeltsovo. Filmed over a period of twenty-nine months in one of the most remote corners of Bulgaria, the film transports us to a different, intimate and breathtakingly beautiful world. The main character of the film is the bee, Polly, who takes the audience on a journey, acting as the narrator and heroic saviour of her sisters. In the name of the people. In the name of civilisation.
