Tsanko is a railway worker dealing with maintenance and inspection. One day he stumbles upon a bag full of newly printed cash. He reports this to the railway management and the transport Ministry. But the leadership wants to sweep it under the rug, and an energetic female PR-executive takes charge of this. Her strategy is to run a spectacular reward campaign for Tsanko. Unfortunately this leads to a chain of nightmarish events for him. A gift watch triggers personal conflicts. Everything evolves into a struggle between the “the average person” and the system, with all its advocates. Directing duo Grozeva/Vlachanov has crafted a social indignation-drama of highest caliber, with confident directing and captivating storytelling.
