This documentary was subjected to condemnation and attempts for institutional censorship as soon as it was done. It completely divided the society of a small post-communist country that hasn’t yet dealt with its past and the fundamental role of the Secret Service. In the 1970s when Bulgarian animation was world famous, Uncle Tony Trayanov and Donio Donev created the phenomenal "Three Fools" together. But while Donev as a darling of the communist regime built a spectacular international career for himself, Uncle Tony Trayanov remained in the shadow due to the subversive role of the State Secret Service.
Mina Mileva (b. 1971 in Sofia, Bulgaria) and Vesela Kazakova (b. 1977 in Sofia, Bulgaria).
