The postman of a tiny Bulgarian village is running for mayor with the policy of welcoming refugees. While campaigning in a poor border settlement without Internet access, his philosophy tackles questions that define the current political debate all across Europe. While young people are fleeing the village for a better future in the Ukraine, those who stay behind are sceptical of the Syrian refugees. Featuring stunning cinematography and an experimental approach to documenting reality on film, THE GOOD POSTMAN is a remarkable take on the crisis that defines our time.
