In the heart of Ukrainian capital there is a workshop where mentally disabled people produce ??hundreds of envelopes daily, for the needs of the Ukrainian post service. There is a special time dimension and rhythm about this place. All the events in the film dissolve in the workshop’s mundane vibrations; the entire universe is concentrated here. The film is woven out of observations. Jura is one of the patients, “a man in the case" type... He is a funny, and yet a tragic, ironic character who has a small unfulfilled dream - to repair his camera, thus making a gift for himself.
