Synopsis

Sofia, November 9th, 2019. Night. As the country prepares to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and the regime change in Bulgaria, three police patrol cars roam the streets of the sleeping city.

The police officers on their rounds take us on a journey through a society that is still looking for its purpose and identity after three decades of transition. These are scenes of survival and failure, of lives saved while others are lost, of generosity dissolving into social cruelty and indifference.

Director Stephan Komandarev won an award at PÖFF with his film “The World Is Big and Salvation Lurks around the Corner” and two years ago PÖFF showed the first film of his film trilogy, “Directions”, which told the stories of taxis driving around in a city at night. Hopefully PÖFF will also show the trilogy’s last film which talks about ambulance crews.
