The Woman

National Academy of Theatre and Film Arts "Krastyo Sarafov", Bulgaria


The Woman follows two in the first glance opposite stories – the one of the young girl, rushing to grow into successful woman and an old lady mourning her lost youth. Both of them appear determined to reach their goals, but in the end it turns out they won’t lead them forward, but instead leave them going in circles.
