Belgrade, 1994. At the foot of a mediaeval fortress, in the centre of the city, Jasar Dzemalov lives in an illegally erected shanty, without water and electricity. In a city where a loaf of bread is priced at three and a half billion dinars, garbage bins have become the source of sustenance for many citizens of Belgrade, the competition around garbage bins is growing keener. Jasar loses his battle, but not the will to survive. Can the city's pigeons provide enough calories for Jasar's emaciated stomach?
