brief synopsis

Within a transitional society, one particular place is trying to adapt and survive. Guided by a young boy (Andrej, 8) and his dog (China, 12), we observe its transformation, gentrification and hear a poem about the city.Inhabitants of China quarter reveal their glorious past, absurd present and uncertain future while authorities, private investors and club owners lurk out of the shadows, pushing their own plans for this place.
