"A road movie set in present day Bulgaria, a country remains optimistic, mainly because all the realists and pessimists have left. At a meeting with his banker, a small business owner, who drives a cab to make ends meet, discovers the bribe he will have to pay to get a loan has doubled. The ethics board that reviewed his complaint about extortion now wants its share of the action. At his wit's end, he takes drastic action sparking a national debate on talk radio about how despair has taken over civil society. Meanwhile, six taxi drivers and their passengers move through the night, each in hope of finding a brighter way forward. Komandarev's empathy for people struggling to survive as best they can is palpable and admirable. Hollywood Reporter "

103 minutes, Stephan Komanderev, Bulgaria, 2017 (15)
