An accident takes place at a large construction site. There is a casualty. Few of the man's colleagues must escort the body to his home village. The truck ventures on the long journey. Gradually the conversation of the travelers shows their attitude towards death. Each of them has his own worries and each of them hurries to go back. When they are close, they meet a fellow villager of the dead man who blows up the truck in order to give his revenge because of an old feud. The people have to carry the coffin themselves from now on. This journey becomes a major challenge for their moral virtues.Written by

I was 18 I saw this movie in Slaveikov Cinema. I was shocked and enchanted - the film told us through the means of cinema the truth for our life in communist state. For me this is the first time I realized the power of author and how the celluloid can influence the existence. The director of the movie is Hristo Hristov who also created A Woman at 33 - best-seller which was taken down by the communists. 5-6 years after the premiere of Kamionat I tried together with my brother to watch again the movie in Filmbox Cinema but the organizers informed us that due to accidental mistake we have to watch Kapitanat instead Kamionat. All 10-15 spectators left the cinema hall disgusted by this monstrous attempt to repress the spirit.
