Vasil

Synopsis:

Vasil is a Bulgarian immigrant who lives on the street. Intelligent and charismatic, he has an amazing talent for chess and bridge, so much so, in fact, that despite being homeless, he manages to make a name for himself in an exclusive and prestigious club in the city. There, he meets Maureen, an Irish woman who´s an advocate for social justice. Maureen turns to an old friend, Alfredo, to see if he can put Vasil up in his home. And he accepts.
What was supposed to be a temporary arrangement lasting just a few days soon turns into months. The differences between Alfredo and Vasil are obvious: a retired man who´s set in his ways and a bohemian spirit who makes his living however he can. The only thing the two men have in common is their passion for chess. But despite all these contrasts Vasil will slowly break down the barriers put up by Alfredo. Because Vasil has this gift: he makes a difference to all the people he relates to.
