"Sometimes a simple premise leads to deep results. Such is the case with "Glory" ("Slava"), Buglarian directors Kristina Grozeva and Petar Valchanov's stirring third feature, which plays like a parable that keeps expanding its themes."
– Eric Kohn, Indiewire
"Kristina Grozeva and Petar Valchanov have a rare ability to make gripping, politically charged drama that is entirely accessible."
– Allan Hunter, Screen Daily
"Shot with flexible naturalism . . . the film quietly builds to a feeling of inexorable disaster, guided by terrific performances as well as spot-on editing."
– Jay Weissberg, Variety

YEAR 13 FILM 8
In a small Bulgarian town, Nade is an honest, hard-working elementary school teacher and devoted mother, struggling to keep her life together. Her unemployed, alcoholic husband has secretly spent their mortgage payments on booze, the agency where she translates legal documents for extra cash is going under, and a thief in her class has stolen the last of her money out of her purse. With few options left, Nade turns to a local loan shark for help, but with the reposession of her home looming, she finds herself with little hope. Resorting to measures her former self would have found depraved, Nade attempts one last desperate act to get the money she needs.
