Screenshot from GloryTsanko Petrov, a railroad linesman, finds millions in cash on the train tracks. He decides to turn the entire amount over to the police, for which the state rewards him with a new wristwatch that soon stops working. Meanwhile, Julia Staikova head of the PR department of the corrupt Ministry of Transport, loses Petrov’s old watch, a family relic. Tsanko’s humble reality collides with a bureaucratic and media-obsessed professional world, as he desperately struggles to recover both his old watch and his dignity.
