Some call Manol “The General”, others “The Golden Hands.” Both capture something essential about this 70-year old patriarch: he is a man of morals and discipline who is quick to fix everything. One day, just before his daughter and son-in-law come home from several years of working abroad, Manol learns that his grandson Georgi, 17, might be gay, who has raised him in the absence of his parents.
