[⏵] A Bulgarian family story about loss, mourning and guilt reminiscent of the absurd comedy of Toni Erdmann. Vasil has just lost his wife. At the funeral, a neighbour claims the dead woman rang her on her mobile. Vasil seeks the help of a well-known psychic in order to contact his wife beyond the grave. Vasil‘s son Pavel considers any form of communication with the other side pure hocus pocus and tries to get his father to see sense. But the stubborn old man will not be dissuaded.
