“Mark & Verse” is a film project throwing a bridge between poetry and animation. It visually interprets six original contemporary Bulgarian poems, each told in a different manner. Animation has no limits and very much like poetry renders visual symbols and metaphors powerful. Stories of doomed paper boats, intimate links to film genres, petty morning crimes, ice-cream hopes, urban moods, and industrial revelations are interwoven in this visual poetry experience.

This is a film about love, ten bottles of vodka and a town that must sink. An aging man goes back to Sozopol and brings along his memories and ten bottles of vodka. It is clear that when the vodka is over, something must happen. Something that will change his life forever. Because when hope is gone, miracle is the last resort.
