Bulgaria, Germany, Macedonia | 2017 | 103’


At a meeting with his banker, a small business owner, who drives a taxi to make ends meet, discovers the bribe he will have to pay to get a loan has doubled. He wants to remain an honest man. The ethics board that reviewed his complaint about extortion now also wants its share of the action. In desperate anger, he shoots the banker and then himself. The incident sparks a major national debate on talk radio about how despair has taken over civil society. Meanwhile, five taxi drivers and their passengers move through the night, each in hope of finding a brighter way forward – a new direction.
