A moving film about the will to survive and the power of dreams. 10-year-old Yula lives in Svalka, Europe's largest garbage dump, situated 20 km from the centre of Moscow. The area is surrounded by a wall and controlled by security, and is supposed to be free of intruders. However, it is home to a group of people who make up a small community living outside the law. They are Yula's closest family. This is where the girl spends every day and dreams of a future far away from the dump. With a camera, director Hanna Polak has accompanied her protagonist for over 14 years, and in the meantime the little girl transformed into a young woman.
