Synopsis

Some call Manol “The General”, others “The Golden Hands.” Both nicknames capture something essential about this 70-year old patriarch: he is a man of morals and discipline who is quick to fix everything - a stray hair, a broken car engine. He is also a loving grandfather, who has raised his grandson, Georgi, in the absence of the boy’s parents.
