The tragic love story of Georgi and Anka in Bulgaria

Milena Boudinova, 2010 | Metropolis TV (Bulgaria)

Georgi and Anka met at a gypsy bridesmarket and fell madly in love. They decided they wanted to get married and they did. But traditionally, for a gypsy marriage to be approved a bride must be paid for. So far, Anka’s dad hasn’t seen any money and decided to take her back home. And whatever the father says, goes. But Georgi’s dad has a veto too: he doesn’t want to pay for a sick bride and Anka suffers from diabetes. In the meanwhile, the now even expecting couple that can’t be together suffer from the traditions the most.
