A completely unexpected variation on the Cinderella story, for adults, with a pinch of salt. Train driver Nurlan is about to retire. He sets off on his farewell route and unexpectedly catches someone’s …bra on the locomotive. Nurlan rents a room in Baku and begins his quest – dedicated search throughout the city. He wants to hand over the property to the one and only proper person. A lyrical, but also witty story told in which not a single word is said. A timeless, metaphorical story about love.
