Tsanko Petrov, a railroad worker, finds millions of leva on the train tracks. He decides to turn the money over to the police, for which the state rewards him with a new wristwatch that soon stops working. Meanwhile, Julia Staikova, head of the PR department of the Ministry of Transport, loses Petrov’s old watch, a family relic. Here starts his desperate struggle to recover both his old watch and his dignity.

An absolutely devastating critique of corporate corruption in post-Communist Bulgaria. Brilliant script and performances single this film out for one of the best of 2017.” – Louis Proyect,Counterpunch.org
