The movie is about the post-communistic mentality, despite that the main characters travel a lot around the globe. “My Heart Is an Octopus or My Father on the Shore of Black Sea” examines the problems of the lost-in-the-transition generation through the eyes of one of its representatives, but it also touches problems common to all mankind. The main character (middle-aged man) is an immigrant, who comes from a hypothetical Balkan country, where he has returned illegally to make a documentary about his father (known but forgotten artist from the recent past), and he returned illegally because in his youth he was involved in a bank robbery.
