|THE WORLD IS BIG AND SALVATION LURKS AROUND THE CORNER|
This is the story of a Bulgarian boy who grows up to be a German man.After a car accident Alex can’t remember even what his name is. In an attempt to cure him from amnesia, his grandfather Bai Dan comes to Germany and organizes a spiritual journey for his grandson back into his past, to the country where he came from. While traveling across time and place and crossing half of Europe, they play backgammon, the simplest, and yet the most complex of all games. This game leads Alex to a realization of who he is, and that backgammon is a key to his story. Destiny is the dice we hold in our own hands and life is a game somewhere between chance and skill.
