The billy goat has come down to earth with a mission - to prevent people from finding a treasure hidden near an ancient Thracian sanctuary. The trumpet player, Jonah, moves into the remains of his grandfather's house near where the treasure is hidden. In a tunnel under the house he finds a stone with a bird engraved on it and a map with an inscription in Arabic: "To have a house of gold, fall onto the sky and find the twin!" A copy of the same map brings Rumba and Emma to the same place. Rumba is Bulgarian and a passionate treasure-hunter. His wife is American and studies Bulgarian folklore as a way to fight globalization. Rumba wants to buy Jonah's property so he can find the treasure. Jonah, whose flat in town was taken away from him by other foreigners because of debts, is afraid that the newcomers will deprive him of this property, too. A conflict arises between the foreign woman and the trumpet player that is strengthened by Jonah's extreme nationalism. Two more people get mixed ... Written by Georgi Djulgerov <>

A wonderful film
26 March 2009 | by (Burgas) – See all my reviews

It's a wonderful film! Last year i heard about the shootings at the harbor in Burgas and i couldn't hardly wait to see it. Last week in Burgas it happened. It was amazing! The full cinema house and the people asking for another screenings. I think it's one of the best Bulgarian movies for the last few years. I laughed so hard at some scenes and so the audience did. So i think it could be a comedy, although i'm sure the director probably used the humor just to open another doors, what he did very well! And what the issues behind this doors are, so certainly this is difficult to be understand by everybody. But who did it, would have maybe my opinion of having a wonderful time watching this movie.
