In the Romanian village of Lunguletu, a thousand farmers on their tractors sit on a hundred-thousand tons of cabbage in the local market, waiting for customers. At the end of the day they either sell their product for little or destroy their crops. Intrigued about the prospect of getting a ton of cabbage for just twenty euros, Serban Georgescu decides to spend one year in the village and work the land, to see why these people got into a deadlock and if there is any way out. The Mayor and some villagers have ideas and possible solutions. Can they overcome the farmers mistrusting each other, their fear of a "collective farm", and the powerful urge to compete?
A glimpse of current realities of agricultural production in Europe. Cabbage, Potatoes and Other Demons tells from the inside the story of a village that got stuck in between past and present.
