A railroad linesman finds millions in cash on the train tracks. After turning the money over to the police, the state celebrates his good deed with a TV press conference and a gift watch that promptly stops working. His old watch, a cherished family heirloom, is lost by the Ministry of Transport. The linesman desperately tries to recover both his watch and his dignity in this Capra-esque tale. A film by Kristina Grozeva and Petar Valchanov.
