This is a tale, full of twists and turns, about the life story of a dreamer – Nikolai Popovski from Kocherinovo. He wished he could fly since he was a child. Without any proper training, he invents and builds the first Bulgarian helicopter in his father’s backyard. His ambitions grow bigger, his inventions – bolder, but life turns out to be as cruel as his dreams are daring. What is the price of a dream? What is the price you have to pay when you get close to the sun?
