The Northern-Bulgarian city of Belene is troubled by insecurity. This sleepy town on the Danube earned undesired renown thanks to its communist labor camp and an unfinished nuclear power plant which was conserved in 1990 and has since been a subject of controversy. The film assembles a gallery of people bothered by their past more than by the swarming mosquitoes. A piano tuner, a former mayor, NATO soldiers based near-by, prostitutes and a Cuban worker who came for the construction of the power plant and stayed. These are the protagonists of a documentary swinging from comedy to sadness and back.
