A humoristic non-fiction movie about young Bulgarian men's (and one Macedonian's) efforts to find female company mostly in Finland. Comic observations about everyday life. I kept thinking that with the camera present, everybody must be acting a role in some sense. A cinema feature movie made with the rules of reality tv.

The visual quality: shaky handheld video look. Interestingly, there is a 8 mm look in the home movie scene in the end of the movie.
