For decades, a couple managed a small pub at Sisak bus station, right next to the entrance of one of the once biggest steel mills in Eastern Europe. A former symbol of the growth of socialist economy, Sisak now looks like a ghost town. The factory is long closed, the workers have moved away or retired. The film documents the last days before the Buffet Željezara closes whose managers now want to try their luck in Germany. In the last pub talks, the few remaining regulars give free rein to racist resentment as well as conspiracy theories about global politics.
