Competition programme of the 23rd Sarajevo Film Festival finished tonight with the regional premiere of the film SON OF SOFIA, by the Bulgarian director Elina Psykou.
Athens, 2004. The Olympic Games return to their country of origin, and ten-year-old Misha leaves Russia to reunite with his mother, Sofia.
