The modest Bulgarian village of Satovchka, where Orthodox Bulgarians and Islamic Turks live alongside gypsies and Communists, boasts as many philosophies of life as it does inhabitants. The local populations coexist in peace and harmony, eschewing violent conflicts of the past and united by social clubs celebrating all manner of interests. Soul Food Stories zeroes in on seven members of one of these clubs—a group of men who meet regularly and attempt to solve all the world's problems over a good meal. Their shared good humor and appetites belie divisions though: over acceptance of homosexuality, women’s rights, and a slew of other issues that occasion heated debate. Interviews with this charmingly diverse collection of characters and other aging villagers paint a picture of a quirky place where Old World values and expectations are being reshaped to resist or accept the encroachment of the modern world.
