In the end of the World War II and in its immediate wake the partisan movement is at its height. The Palaveevi sisters are students from a well-to-do Sofia family. The twins are 17, blonde, slender and athletic. They despise their parents for being stuck in middle-class routine or at least the twins think so.


In their quest for a meaningful cause and desire to be part of an organized community Kara and Yara pass through a string of “movements and teachings” popular at the time: theosophers, Dunovists, Tolstoists, Branniks, Communists. The main aim of the sisters is to become “new persons”. They get into a group of partisans and stir up a commotion in the hearts of people’s warriors. Then follow stories of battles, treachery, death and survival full of absurd and tragicomical situations. Their striving for change goes extinct in the shadow of the coming totalitarism.
