A sturdy miner in his fifties, Mr. K, is sitting with his wife in the living room of his spacious apartment on the fifth floor of a block of flats. The walls are filled with decorations, from the open shelves glass animals, small souvenirs from foreign lands and the family china stare at them. Mr. K is exhausted, can hardly control his emotions. He is on the verge of crying. "I hate them. The only thing they know is how to make children, destroy things and make a mess. That's their culture." Mrs. E, a well-dressed elderly lady is sitting at her favorite table in her favorite restaurant. "The new owners started letting them in. So we explained to them that if they turn it into a gypsy bar we'll stop coming. They stopped letting them in. It's been quiet ever since."Cinematographic essay about decency. Everyday banal situations shed light onto those dark, hidden places in us that unveil the thin border separating normality from abnormality and show us the forces causing the failure of the multi-cultural social model.
