„The Concert” is a celebration of the Bulgarian folk song. It makes us stand taller as people and as a nation. It saves us from the low-living.
A quartet of folk singers is getting prepared for a concert. Four ordinary women who turn into unordinary human beings when they step onto the stage. Their voices and songs are divine and bringing enlightenment about the meaning of life.
