Everything in this comically dramatic piece is beginning with the advent of a wandering balloon, drifted from the front of the World War II, so it appeared over Abraham's neighborhoods. This event leads to formation of three groups of peasants who began to pursuit of the balloon. The images of the pursuers are more than colorful: Daskal Kiro, Hadji Avram, Petleto, Iliyko, Mattei the Nothingness, Avram the shuttle, Igotto, Pavel, Peter, Abramovitsa, Avramcheto, Babina Dushiza. For his play Radichkov wrote: "The events also include: a children's kite, a flea, a domesticated crow with the name Momo, Angels who carry the soul of a dead, group from Vlashko, a group of serbians with guns, group of Greeks playing a sad melody of stringed instruments, group of Turks with a hodzcha. These four groups must symbolize the Balkans, which get collectively get involved in the chase for the balloon. The highest among the Balkans is our group of persecutors, as we are in the very center of the Peninsula. The Balkans are mansions of eagles, mansions of aerial ideas, where the spirit of man is soaring high in the clouds and each of the characters has flown at least once in a dream. This Chronicle has a modest task to show how real-life events create myths. All myths are created by the common people, a mixture of imagination and ignorance, and a constant dream of man to break away from the miserable and despicable earthly life. As it enlightens and warms the human soul, the despised and miserable life begins to sound almost baladically and dims with pure human light. "
