MY MATE MANCHESTER UNITED

Following the quest of a man‘s awkward dream to be named after his favorite football club, the film director brings us close to a Bulgarian builder and his memorable mates. He creates a moving portrait of contemporary Bulgaria with its confused people, so disappointed by the life in the country that they migrate to their own substitute reality. The journey starts in Svishtov, a small town on the bank of the river Danube and leads us all the way to Old Trafford Stadium, where he meets his idol, the Bulgarian Manchester United top-striker Dimitar Berbatov.
