Film Story

It’s winter, 5 degrees and the water is steaming. People sit in the hot water, leaning against the edge of the pool. Behind them the sea, an infinite expanse.What at first glance looks like a beautiful spa by the sea, the people of Varna call it THE PIT. A cinematic portrait of the Bulgarian present and the investigation of a microcosm that stands for an entire society. Individual ¬†¬†biographies, touching personal stories, interpersonal conflicts and exciting discussions combine to form a diverse picture. World views and political convictions meet in the pit and tell of social change and stagnation on the edge of Europe.
