Synopsis: 

In the Romanian village of Lunguletu, 1,000 farmers on their tractors sit on 100,000 tons of cabbages, waiting for customers. At the end of the day, they either sell their produce for nothing or destroy their crops. Serban, intrigued by the possibility of buying 1 ton of cabbages for only 20 euros, decides to spend one year in the village and to find out if there is any way out of this deadlock. The mayor and certain villagers have ideas and possible solutions. Yet can they overcome their fear of a collective farm? A satire of the current reality of agriculture in Europe.
