Tsanko Petrov, a railroad linesman, finds millions in cash on the train tracks. After turning all the money over to the police, the state celebrates his good deed with a televised press conference and a shiny new wristwatch that promptly stops working. Meanwhile, Julia Staikova, head of public relations for the corrupt Ministry of Transport, loses his old watch, which was a cherished family heirloom. Tzanko's humble reality collides with a bureaucratic and media-obsessed professional world, as he desperately struggles to recover both his watch and his dignity in this Capra-esque tale from the award-winning directors of The Lesson.

    "Sometimes a simple premise leads to deep results. Such is the case with "Glory" ("Slava"), Buglarian directors Kristina Grozeva and Petar Valchanov's stirring third feature, which plays like a parable that keeps expanding its themes. "

    "Kristina Grozeva and Petar Valchanov have a rare ability to make gripping, politically charged drama that is entirely accessible. "

  • Highest Rating
    "Shot with flexible naturalism . . . the film quietly builds to a feeling of inexorable disaster, guided by terrific performances as well as spot-on editing. "
