All is written in the faces!
Metin Cavus from Istanbul, Turkey

A film crew is "embedded" to one of the ambulance crews in the capital
of Bulgaria, Sofia. We follow this close-relation three-people
emergency team, constituted by a driver, an emergency physician and an
emergency nurse, during their night shifts, when they are on duty and
also when they are waiting for a call. However, we are mainly directed
not to the incidents but watching the faces of our protagonists, even
when they operate during emergency cases. So all the intention is
transferred to the audience through off-screen talking and the faces of
It is a great documentary by young filmmaker Ilian Metev. He
implemented a highly stylistic approach and well controlled ups and
downs in the narrative, which is fluent enough for a documentary. We
really identify with the characters, like in a fiction film, and
appreciate their struggle, commitment and passion for work, despite the
facts that they operate in very bad conditions.
It is not all about the body, but the soul!
