In a city where 13 ambulances struggle to serve 2 million people, Krassi, Mila and Plamen are our unlikely heros: chain-smoking, filled with humour and relentlessly saving lives against all odds. Yet, the strain of a broken system is taking its toll. How long can they keep on fixing society’s injured until thy lose their empathy? The film uses an unorthodox creative form which dodges sensationalism. We are captivated by the faces of our protagonists and the sound surrounding one of Sofia’s last ambulances.
