In winter at the crossroads of savage East and civilized West, people of the Ukrainian part of the Danube delta earn their living by cutting reeds while dreaming to catch the legendary beluga fish that could bring the lucky one a fortune on the spot. With dreams rather than goals and water rather than firm ground beneath their feet, these people revel in the very moment of this unbearably lightness of being.
