A slow-burning thriller, Western follows German construction workers installing a hydroelectric plant in rural Bulgaria. Tensions mount when bold newcomer Meinhard begins mixing with the local villagers. The two groups share a troubled history: Can they learn to trust each other—or is the stage being set for a showdown? Writer-director Valeska Grisebach has been widely praised for her skill at adapting the Western genre to the discontent of contemporary Europe.
