A jet black comedy from a country on the verge of societal collapse

A comedy so black the laughter gets stuck in your throat, Stephan Komandarev's DIRECTIONS takes place in and around taxis that glide through the Bulgarian capital Sofia. In a country where everyone moonlights as a taxi driver in order to make extra money, these men and women take on the role as the country's conscience as it lumbers towards the edge of the abyss. Exclusively populated by murderous, suicidal and tragically disillusioned individuals, DIRECTIONS is a darkly fascinating road trip through a failing country.
