Directions is a road movie through the dystopia of Bulgaria today, a country that remains optimistic, because all realists and pessimists have left it. During an appointment with his banker, the owner of a small business, who drives a taxi to make ends meet, discovers that the bribe he will have to pay to obtain a loan has doubled. The ethics board that examined his blackmail complaint is now asking for his share. Not knowing which saint to devote himself to, the owner kills the banker and commits suicide. This incident has sparked a national radio debate about the despair that reigns in civil society. Meanwhile, five taxi drivers and their passengers move through the night, each hoping to find a clearer way forward.
