THE BULGARIAN SAGA OF THE VELCHEVS CONTINUES…

The second season of THE TREE OF LIFE, entitled THE WRATH OF HUMBLED, promises to be even more exciting, fascinating and grandiose.

The new chapters are developed in a revolutionary and tense landscape in Bulgaria as it was the period 1918-1925. We find a time marked by brutality, the collapse of ideals, the fall of nationalist hope and the tragic division of society.

This climate undoubtedly affects Velchev family relationships, most of whose members were deeply marked by past dramatic experiences in the shape of betrayal, passion, impossible love, greed, revenge or heroism.

In THE TREE OF LIFE 2 - THE WRATH OF HUMBLED Jordan (Hristo Shopov) not only survives after the injuries he suffered on the battlefield but is promoted to Colonel. The respect he enjoys among Vidin society is, if possible, even greater than in the first season. His reputation is such that he is appointed Chief Justice of Sofia to judge the Bulgarian Army rebels and deserters captured with arms. His right-thinking and patriotism soon conflict with the new times and ideologies that took control of society in the first quarter of the twentieth century.

Todor's death devastated Bela's soul, who now just struggles to survive, entirely dedicated to her son and her work as a doctor. However, an architect will appear in her life and deeply shock the Velchev's only sister.

Hristo, after his ordeal in the trenches during the war, takes the path to fanaticism in his political beliefs, with Ekaterina's help, a young orphan who moves to Vidin to live with her aunt Elena Kamenova.

Yana achieved everything a girl of her position could dream of: she married Jordan, the man she always loved, and had his son. However, Colonel Velchev’s long absences from home and the emergence on the scene of a wealthy French official, keen on luxury and the good life, cause an unexpected change in attitude in the lady and even jeopardizes the fidelity in her marriage.

Meanwhile, Panto returns home profoundly transformed, away from richness and entirely devoted to religious life. But, are these real changes in a person who’s recent past was marked by banal affairs and unscrupulous enrichment?

Humiliated at the end of the series first season, Bojura is forced to marry Ilia. Her life with him is essentially unhappy, but Panto's return sparks love in her heart.

The chapters in the second part of THE TREE OF LIFE introduce new characters such as Lichkata, a cruel, ambitious and evil Chief of Police of the city, who becomes Velchev's enemy and especially Jordan's; the Sergeant, a simple man who, devoting all his years to serve King and country, is a faithful follower of Jordan's will; or such as Franz Wienerberger, a mysterious geologist who suddenly arrives from Vienna to settle in Vidin looking for gold. Nobody knows about him but Bojura will be attracted to this mysterious stranger.

All these relationships coupled with serious underlying conflicts between the Velchev family members, as well as the new problems in the series, always guided by historical events shaking Bulgaria during those years, give THE TREE LIFE 2 - THE WRATH OF HUMBLED a strong share of excitement and richness in its plot.
