While hitchhiking to get to his friend’s funeral, Kamen meets Avé, a 17-year-old runaway girl who is looking for her drug addict brother. With each ride they hitch, Avé invents new identities for them, and gets Kamen deeper and deeper into trouble.
Everything in this film worked for me - the actors, the setting, the memories, the music, the camera work, the dirty city, the scattered countryside, the last song by Catherine Feeny. The fact that there were over 100 people at the U.S. premiere was also nice. After 20 years of random attempts, Bulgarian cinema is finally waking up!
