Western is a humble film about ordinary people and an untamed place far from civilization.
Meinhard is a reclusive worker who watches life from a distance with an ambiguous smile. There is nowhere he really feels at home, so he has no problem taking a job in a forgotten corner of Bulgaria where with a German team he is going to build a hydroelectric power plant.
