Dissident Grigor Bozhilov lives in a ramshackle house on the fringe of an abandoned village near the Bulgarian-Serbian border. His name means nothing to anybody. The personal story of one of the founders of the Bulgarian Independent Society for the Protection of Human Rights, gives an insight into the processes kept hidden from the public eye. What went wrong? Communism came crashing down, but what about the advent of democracy?
