Women of action and obstinacy live and struggle with brutality, humor, tenderness and frustration in Radomir, Bulgaria, the Town of Joy and Peace. All inhabit a society where lowness, trickery, networking and criminality rule at numerous levels. They face the devil’s temptations: sex, alcohol, prostitution, petty robbery as well as the tolerated misappropriation of people’s lives and freedoms. Yet these women do not lose face or hope. They struggle.
