Glory

When a reclusive railway worker finds bags of cash on the tracks, he does the right thing and calls the police. Hailed as a model citizen by the propaganda-hungry Ministry of Transport, he is rewarded with a new watch and promptly hustled into the spotlight. Amid the media circus, the reluctant hero’s beloved old watch goes missing. When his struggle to reclaim it is ignored by the Ministry’s calculating PR queen, a darkly comedic, sharply satirical, and completely unexpected morality tale ensues that offers a savvy dissection of class and power in contemporary Bulgaria.
