Film exposes a paradoxical situation where countryside with its multicultural (Lithuanians, Russians, Poles, Romas) community exists in the very centre of Vilnius. The film also tries to find out the origin of the district’s nickname Shanghai. Film portraits inhabitants of Vilnius Shanghai, who have their own rules, loves, habits and sins.
