The action takes place at Kazichene prison in Bulgaria. Kalin thinks it’s worth fighting to win over just one person, enduring the less than favourable conditions of the Bulgarian correctional system. He doesn’t judge his ‘clientele’, and tries to draw out and encourage their hidden talents, which even their parents have failed to recognise. His goal: to raise at least one out of every 100 people out of the gutter.
