Colourful poetic comedy about the train driver Nurlan on his last trip before retirement. When the train enters Baku’s narrow streets, a washing line breaks and a bra falls down on the track. Deciding to return the bra to its owner and to escape its own lingering loneliness, Nurlan sets out on a tumultuous adventure in the city’s colorful outskirts. Award-winning director Veit Helmer presents a charming and visually captivating story, just as absurd as nostalgic.
