The World is Big and Salvation Lurks Around the Corner is a multiple award-winner on the festival circuit starring Miki Manojlovic as Bai Dan, whose grandson Alex's first cry coincided with his grandfather's crowning as 'king of backgammon'. Now, 30 years on, Alex has lost his memory. Doctors give little hope of recovery but Bai Dan has other, eccentric ideas. Through the game of backgammon, and a quest by tandem across Europe back to their native Bulgaria, the younger man learns about the past and rediscovers who he is.

Thanks to the Director
