HS-09. Glory

Bulgaria, Feature Film, 2016, 101 min

“Sharply executed, superbly performed.” HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

Tsanko Petrov, a railroad linesman with a speech impediment, finds millions of Bulgarian leva on the train tracks. He decides to turn the entire amount over to the police, for which the state rewards him with a wristwatch that soon stops working. Meanwhile, Julia Staikova, head of the public relations department of the corrupt Ministry of Transport, loses Petrov’s old watch, a family relic. Tsanko’s humble reality collides with a bureaucratic and media-obsessed professional world as he desperately struggles to recover both his old watch and his dignity. Just because a person can’t talk very well, doesn’t mean he or she is not smart or capable of revenge.

Directed by Kristina Grozeva and Petar Valchanov
