Whether a worker at a sorting line, a waste dump director, or an ecology expert, all protagonists in Kryštof Zvolánek’s student documentary claim that the fight against packaging, the largest component of waste material, starts in our own households. They may have a point. If you are not sufficiently motivated to recycle, come and see how large the waste press machine is in the small town of Zlín.

Meanwhile, in the snowy morning, three men at the truck agree that being a trashman may mean not betraying your childhood dreams.
