Eastern Plays stabs you deep right in the heart. In this semi-biographical, semi-fictional story young Itzo fights hard with his drug-addict past, follows the conditions of the methadone program and goes out with his cute but a little superficial girlfriend Niki. A simple story told in simple words - that is how stories about the true things in life are told. In a moment of despair Itzo meets the young Turkish girl Ishil when her family is attacked by neo-Nazis in a Sofia street. One of the attackers is Itzo's brother - Georgi, who later understands that his friends are not suitable for him. Besides the intriguing story, Kalev offers us an unusual vision of Sofia - landscapes and people who we do not see for the first time.
