In 1979, following an unplanned pregnancy, Boryana gives birth to Viktoria. Miraculously born with no belly button and proclaimed “the baby of the decade,” Viktoria becomes a symbol of communist Bulgaria but grows up constantly at war with her mother. When the Communist regime collapses in 1989, Viktoria’s life is turned upside down and the hardships of the new era bind her and her mother together. A Bulgarian/Romanian co-production, and the first from the former country to screen at Sundance, Viktoria is a darkly funny and truly innovative epic infused with strikingly surreal images, offering a unique perspective on the communist chimera.
