Half a century ago, socialist Yugoslavia was planning to build a museum with a bold vision: “to safeguard the truth about us”. The dark labyrinthine basement of this utopian project — the only part of it that was ever built remains today. The derelict building now tells a very different story. In the damp, pitch-dark space live the outcasts of a society reshaped by capitalism. The film focuses on a girl who earns cash on the street by cleaning car windows with her mother. The girl has a close friendship with an old woman who also lives in the basement. Against the background of a transforming city, the three women find refuge in each other.
