Bulgaria , 2008, 89 min, color

Bulgaria, the night of October 18, 1922. A rampageous young man – an American, is forced to get off the Orient Express at a small station. The Station Master and his daughter are quite unwilling to put up the stranger. Gradually the American wins their trust. When the father finds out that his daughter has decided to go away to Paris with the American, he prepares a potion to make him fall asleep and secretly puts him on a train. In the morning all that has been left from the guest is a piece of paper with a military cross attached to it and the name “Ernest Hemingway”.
