Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
 
“…(a) mesmerising psychological drama.” ★★★★★ –
Tim Robey, The Telegraph

A group of German construction workers start a tough job at a remote site in the Bulgarian countryside. The foreign land awakens the men’s sense of adventure, but they are also confronted with their own prejudices and mistrust due to the language barrier and cultural differences with the native villagers. 

The foreman Vincent and the mysterious Meinhard also start to fall out. The stage is quickly set for a showdown when the German workers begin to compete for recognition and favour from the local villagers.
