Husband and wife writer-director duo Kristina Grozeva and Petar Valchanov conjure up a dramedy tinged with the supernatural in this award-winning Bulgarian gem. Following the death of an elderly woman, her bereaved husband (Ivan Savov) and disbelieving son (Ivan Barnev) embark on a road trip in search of a medium who might shed some light on the hereafter. Their increasingly unhinged odyssey throws up painful secrets and unexpected tenderness.
