Recommend this film

This is a story full of butterflies, silk and schizophrenics, about misery, joy, optimism and compassion.

As director of the Home for Psychologically Challenged Men, situated in a 16th century monastery near the Bulgarian capital of Sofia, Dr Georgi Lulchev fulfils the role of psychiatrist, neurologist, administrator, entrepreneur and amateur chef.

Georgi's dream is to create a farm in the yard of the Home, where his troubled patients can raise snails, ostriches and pheasants, and produce silk fibres and soy bread.

In a country where 80% of the population live in poverty, every day is marked by the struggle to survive. To overcome the shortage of funds, Dr Georgi Lulchev has devised myriad money-making schemes. Over the last 15 years, he has tried to implement some very unconventional business ideas, often with little success. But always he has resumed his efforts with unflagging enthusiasm.

He says "It's our duty to make them [the inmates] feel like human beings here".
