A confessional life story – every bit as wild, entertaining and absurd as its inspiration. A story about a colorful character, an excellent scammer who has become the spokesman оf a generation, having lived on both sides of the Transition – the last years of Socialism in Bulgaria with all its absurdities, humiliations, amusements and all sorts of illegal schemes – underground gambling, currency exchange scams and countless tricks, mastered to perfection, for making easy money in hard times. An adventurer with his own life philosophy who is ready to hurl himself into any new undertaking, Chekmo does not hesitate to travel to East Berlin only days after the fall of the Berlin Wall, where new affairs await him.
