On the outskirts of Serbia’s capital, Belgrade, lies one of the biggest landfills in Europe – Vinča. Once an archeological site of the European Neolithic, this toxic place, unsettled by fires, is a workplace for a community of plastic bottle collectors – Bottlemen. In this documentary-western, we follow the last days of this community before their jobs become obsolete, and focus on the good-hearted boxer, Yanika, who struggles to lead the group in a chaotic system.
