One night in Sofia, three police cars on patrol. Between suicidal husbands, wandering dementia patients, human traffickers and arguments about the communist past and European present, it’s no wonder a corpse might get heaved into the next precinct’s jurisdiction – there’s enough paperwork as it is. ROUNDS, winner of goEast 2020, paints a milieu portrait that lay claim to relevance beyond the confines of Bulgarian society.
