The director presents a film of
the people who live on the margins of life and exist outside normal
society. The film is divided into ten chapters, each recounting
stories from the lives of the people living in Chisinau, the capital
of Moldova. From 1986 to 1990, Aristakisian lived among the tramps
and beggars there, studying them and empathising with their plight.
His sensitive narration is that of a father intoning truths to his
unborn child, paired with black and white footage of the individual,
whose outsider status was part of their uniqueness.
