UROTCITE NA BLAGA

VIC & NSW Premiere

"As thought-provoking as it is gripping." - Hollywood Reporter

When a retired, recently widowed teacher falls prey to a phone scam, she’s left robbed of her life savings and without any money for her late husband’s grave. Her life turns upside down when she realises that there’s no way of gaining her money back until she receives an alluring, yet suspicious offer for work. The tables turn as she takes matters into her own hands and cash begins rolling in, this time claiming her most prized attribute: her values, as she slowly and surely transforms into the scammer herself.

In this tense and suspenseful drama, director Stephan Komandarev chronicles step by step the journey of a woman swirling into the vicious cycle of the dog-eat-dog reality outside her window. Led by an incredible performance from Karlovy Vary Best Actress winner Eli Skorcheva, a veteran of Bulgarian cinema and TV who returned to acting after a 30-year absence.
