A reclusive Bulgarian railway worker finds tons of cash spilled on the tracks and turns them in to the police. When the transport ministry's head of PR decides to use him as a diversion from a corruption scandal, his simple life falls victim to the government bureaucracy. In Bulgarian with English subtitles. 101 minutes.

"The variable incongruities of Glory give it a queasy power uncommon in contemporary cinema." The New York Times
"A sharply executed, superbly performed Bulgarian tragic dramedy where the lives of a cosmopolitan PR woman and lonely railroad worker come together in some highly unfortunate ways." The Hollywood Reporter

"Its rough-hewn naturalism belies an exquisite sense of pace and a sneaky breed of gallows humor." Slant Magazine
"Expertly paced .... Glory is another another stiletto-sharp report on the state of modern Bulgaria from the directors of the equally tense and insightful The Lesson. " -- Screen International
