THE FATHER

Bulgaria/Greece, 2019, 90’

A day after Valentina’s funeral, her bereaved husband Vassil and
son Pavel find out that she keeps trying to call a neighbour on
the phone. A sucker for the supernatural, Vassil sets out on a
trip to meet a medium, forcing his estranged son Pavel to tag
along. The unhinged journey that follows will make them face
the guilt they feel towards the one they lost and rediscover their
relationship.
