The film was shot in 2024. The producer and director is the public figure Hristo Iliev. The viewers will touch stories and facts that are not taught in textbooks and are not recorded in books, but are living heritage, memories of the families of the great Bulgarians. The film features outstanding people such as Boyan Botev, a relative of Hristo Botev; Stefan Karaivanov – a relative of Vasil Levski; Hari Draganov, a relative of Sofroniy Vrachanski, who is an opera singer at the Geneva Opera, as well as one of the great Bulgarian historians, Prof. Plamen Pavlov.

Short but extremely meaningful, the film poses questions whose answers are hidden in each one of us, modern Bulgarians, fighting every day for a better life and a brighter tomorrow. "People" is mainly aimed at young people - to touch the native, to the Bulgarian, "to be proud of being Bulgarian, to realize their responsibility to our ancestors and above all to be human".
