The film documents the life of one of the oldest and largest European markets. Passion on both sides of the counter, loaders’ dreams, hidden fantasies of fish sellers… Security guards and flea market manager share their thoughts about the universe and the meaning of life. The past, the present, the future, and Romani fortune tellers, “the most precise weight” and generous portions on trial. There are all segments of the population at the Pryvoz. They are exposed and revealed! Everybody comes here, and everyone finds something for him/herself. Seekers of miracles or metamorphoses of destiny, human soul, and time will not leave empty-handed.
