Synopsis:

People often do not realize what is hiding behind the imitations of charity organizations like “Salvation Army”, advertised with flyers that invite for charitable donations to handicapped children, women with cancer and the poor. But what is the real destination of the given donations?

The journey of the donated garments is accompanied by a hidden and inconceivable life and lifestyle of the emigrants in this business. In this film, with a touch of a detective drama, we will follow lives of four vivid characters who experience cultural clashes, tragicomic incidents but manage to retain passion and irony in the cruel and inhumane environment of their degrading work.​
