Mai (2013)

Feature film | Drama Duration 17:10

On her way to a party, Mai encounters two Russian drug addicts in a public bus. One of the guys is in a critical condition. Mai begs both the bus driver and the people in the bus to help the man, but all that she meets is indifference and fear. People are looking away from the worrying young woman and the young man in danger, it is more comfortable this way. Mai understands that the only way to act is to find the solution herself.
