Synopsis:

Antiquity shops in Bucharest are saturated with objects of art. You can find anything there, from paintings, clocks of Chinato pieces of jewlery. These places have an aesthetics of their own. Who brings in all these objects for sale and who buys them? In a changing society, there are parallel worlds living simultaneously. Some are dying out, others are just emerging. The film observes the transfer of objects of art from one world to another.
