'Plovdiv Life Vest' is a film forecast by the Bulgarian director Dimitar Shopov, created at the beginning of the 21st century /2017/. The film is inspired by the Bulgarian people and dedicated to the Old Town of Plovdiv.

The plot develops in a geometric progression of bad phenomena, and like any future, it is not optimistic. The earth is inhabited by hundreds of different types of humanoid robots, but not humans. And yet humankind – this unique species – manages to isolate itself and exists in a handful of forgotten people who found salvation in the last ecosystem on Earth - the city of Plovdiv. Humankind has crossed all boundaries and has exceeded the limit of its nonsense - the year is 2120. There is only one climate - tropical. Tomatoes have given way to bananas.

The Eternal City is very excited and has 20 million residents seeking political asylum from all over the world.

The machines in this city, unlike the rest of the world, are unusable. Cars are used for carts and barns, the virtual gives way to the real.

But there is still a machine that people cannot part with because it literally keeps the economy alive.

The coffee machine!
