Synopsis: Fifteen kilometers south of Belgrade, Serbia, on an archaeological site of the ancient
Vinča civilization, lies the biggest Balkan’s landfill. Unsettled by an inextinguishable fire raging below its surface, this toxic land is the workplace for a group of Serbian Roma bottle collectors. We follow the last days of this unlikely community before their jobs become obsolete.
