Product description

Product Description

Sofia, the capital city of Bulgaria, has more than two million inhabitants and only 13 ambulances... Ilian Metev's gritty, multi-award-winning documentary follows two medics and their driver as they struggle to cope amid a decaying health system. Filmed over a period of two years we watch these three who risk their lives' for others. Metev's film, refreshingly, lacks any sensationalism, political agenda or contrivances. Instead, this fly-on-the-dashboard record just follows the lives of this ambulance crew as they go out into the night to help the injured and needy. Filled with humour and camaraderie as they relentlessly go about saving lives, yet the strain of a broken system is taking a human toll on our unsung heroes: how long can they keep fixing societies injured until they lose both their devotion and their empathy? This extraordinary portrait manages to be intimately heartbreaking and rigidly unsentimental.
