Poslednata lineika na Sofia (Sofia’s Last Ambulance)
With a steady eye, Sofia's Last Ambulance gives us an intimate insight into the fragile working relationships in a team operating under extreme pressure. This allows us to become close to the three strong protagonists who occupy the screen.
From within the confined space of an ambulance, the film sensitively reveals the shortcomings of the social welfare system in contemporary Bulgaria.
