    • Synopsis
    • In the span of twenty-four hours, the fate of various people’s lives will collide and be affected during each individuals taxi ride. All are victims of the decline of a suffering nation.

      We drive through the streets of the city of Sofia and look through the eyes of drivers and clients as hope slowly creeps in. We see that each decision we make has a ripple effect on others. We learn that even one person’s death could give another the chance at a new life. That just one simple act of kindness will indeed make a difference.

      These stories are about love and indifference, about devotion and loneliness; all connected by a radio show that poses questions but gives no answers. This is a story about a society’s need for a new DIRECTION even if it was as invasive as open heart surgery.
