A little girl named WAR, with supernatural abilities, is growing up isolated in a foster home. Flowers wither, trees dry up, objects are set on fire by her proximity and touch. One day, WAR escapes from the orphanage and, now at liberty, unfolds her gift to the extreme, causing all sorts of disasters to humanity. When everything seems hopeless and the world lies in flames and ashes, on the last unburned island, in a ray of light, WAR encounters love in the face of a boy named PEACE.

DIMITAR DIMITROV graduated in Animation Direction from the Krastyo Sarafov National Academy for Theatre and Film Arts, in the class of Prof. Donyo Donev.
