Running time: 10'

Production: GER 2012

A documentary showing one day in the life of the people working at the landfill in Howrah (India). That is where garbage from 16 mln people can be found. Thanks to this more than 200 people have a job, picking garbage. However, the poverty all around is unimaginable – mothers who busily look for food waste to be able to feed their families. Children who play joyfully, regardless of everything around them, and herds of wild pigs fitting into the landscape. A film about the everyday struggle to survive, about dreams and visions.
