The town of Zhlobin in Belarus has spent 21 years since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Most of the locals survive solely by making and selling soft toys, while their only customers are the people passing through on trains. However, approaching a train with a toy in one’s hands is illegal. The ordinary inhabitants of Zhlobin make toys, sell them despite the strict prohibition, have chats, drink, go back to making toys, sing, fight and… make toys again.
