Bulgarian director Ilian Metev’s Sofia’s Last Ambulance puts us in the harrowing life-and-death everyday scenarios of three out of the thirteen paramedics in a country inhabited by millions.

More in-depth story details can be read as follows:

“In a city where 13 ambulances struggle to serve 2 million people, Krassi, Mila and Plamen are our unlikely heroes: chain-smoking, filled with humour, relentlessly saving lives against all odds. Yet, the strain of a broken system is taking a human toll: how long can they keep fixing society’s injured until they loose their empathy?

 

The film uses an unorthodox creative form which dodges sensationalism. We are captivated by the faces of our protagonists and the sounds surrounding one of SOFIA’S LAST AMBULANCEs.”
