Synopsis

Observation of life in rural Bulgaria. A small deserted rail station, station without future and faith. Nobody gets on or off the train. An old retired switchman lives there with his family. In the nearby village local poet digs graves to make ends meet. A projectionist remembers the once crowded movie theatre. An Old man is looking for a pear tree, where young lovers used to meet. A shepherd dreams of ice cream, served in a restaurant. A paramedic and a philosopher cares for an elderly single woman. Confessions from little people about not so little things – cows, life, faith, death, the benefits of dogs and mice and the need for blond waitresses, Jean-Paul Sartre and existentialism, river fishing, old fortune tellers and the wind.
