Bratislava, Slovakia's capital city, where the old and the new mix as a result of massive construction, but also a home changing before the eyes of its inhabitants. The poetics of the everyday and the portraits of its citizens present a socially critical account of the city's contemporary transformations. The lonely Blanka watches the transformations from the balcony of her apartment. Composer Danko copes with the rapid changes of his "City on the Moon" and tries to capture its rhythm. Matthew wants to become the local mayor. Michal, a real estate agent, introduces clients to the possibility of living happily in Bratislava apartments, and two workers draw lines through the city and contemplate life with a bottle of beer. The black-and-white documentary portrays Bratislava's atmosphere through visual compositions, accompanied by a symphony of the surrounding urban bustle.
