In Azerbaijan, Arzu has the last IKARUS bus still running to Sumgayit from the remote region of Lenkoran.
The IKARUS used to be considered the height of luxury, but after the collapse of the Soviet Union, passengers preferred new buses. So all the drivers have left their old friend and upgraded, but Arzu couldn’t – his father was and is still against his son getting a new bus. For him there’s none better than his old friend IKARUS.
Nowadays, Arzu is struggling to survive, opening the doors of his exhausted, rusty IKARUS to everyone - and everything that new buses refuse to carry.
But he still lives with the dream of getting a new bus one day!
