Summary How and why do Gypsy refugees from Kosovo recycle abandoned Dyanas and 2CVs? The legendary collectors cars are transformed tools-free into Mad Max-like ecological machines. Everything is removed from the chasis except the engine, while a hand-woven recycling bin is improvised in the back, painted in bright colors and decorated with tricky gadgets. An intimate look at four Roma families from a Belgrade favella who live out of selling cardboard and bottles which they collect with their Dyanas. They even use the car batteries as power generators in order to get some light, watch TV and recharge their mobiles! But the polic don't always find thse strange vehicles funny..
