Sparrows in October (2006)

Setting: Dervent village, somewhere in north-western Bulgaria, in the early 21st century.
Residents: Pascal, who is always looking for ways to rescue the village from the abyss of unemployment and poverty; Anani, who dreams of being a wax model at Madame Tussaud’s; Yovan the shepherd; Miro; who keeps an ostrich; the Neighbour, an eternal malcontent; the Chicken, the village drunkard; and the hesitant Mayor.
Worth seeing: a species of Tower of Babel that rises above the village, a product of the complex relations between the villagers and the State as represented by the electrical company.
Historical event: one day Pascal is visited by an Angel, who brings a message – if people in the village do not start smiling more and being kinder to each other, God will stop helping them. Of course, after this conversation the situation never changes an inch.
