THE NAKED TRUTH ABOUT ZHIGULI BAND | Bulgaria

Victor Bojinov 2021 1h 50m

Synopsis

The former frontman of the once-loved rock band ‘Zhiguli’, Fory, cannot pay the tuition fees for his talented daughter at the Royal Academy of Music in London. A wealthy, loyal fan of Fory offers him a hefty paycheck if his favorite band from his youth ‘Zhiguli’ plays at his 50th anniversary. This offer fully motivates Fory to bring back the band that fell apart 30 years ago. He discovers that none of the members live their dreamy lives. They have slowly turned into a practical rebel – if you don’t benefit from it, don’t get into a fight (a quote from Zhiguli’s song). During their rehearsal, they dive into clarifying old love tensions and conflicts and create new funny blunders. The movie is about the impulse of a generation, which connected its youth to the changes after the year 1989, to start the fight over. Now not that much for themselves, but more for their children.
