The road linking Bulgaria, Macedonia and Albania corresponds to the site of a huge EU infrastructure project called Corridor #8. The distance between Sofia and Tirana is exactly 324 km. Currently the entire trip lasts... 3 days. On the Balkans it turns out that short distances are sometimes the longest. Corridor #8 is a mosaic film combining fragments from the everyday lives of the characters who live along a non-existent Balkan road. The road passes through the Balkan countries of Bulgaria, Macedonia and Albania. In 2007, Bulgaria joined the EU as its poorest member; Macedonia in the past was divided by ethnic conflict and was the scene of military action during the Yugoslav War; Albania, under its communist dictatorship, was completely isolated from the rest of the world.
