On top of a world known archeological site from the Neolithic Age, lies the biggest Balkan landfill, Vinča. Unsettled by inextinguishable fires, this toxic landscape is a workplace for a community of plastic bottle collectors, known as bottlemen. Through intimate portraits of its members, we follow this group, led by Yanika, a former boxer. Bottlemen arrive with dreams of earning big money, but the landfill becomes their new home and prison at the same time. We witness the ups and downs of this group and their eventual break-up, which will leave Yanika working all alone and distant from his family. Faced with the transformation of the landfill, the entire community of bottlemen is counting its last days. (CineLink Industry Days)
