"We live in a plastic age," says one of the protagonists. This documentary examining the city of Zlín shows what this statement really means in practice – and not only for its citizens.

The short reportage film depicts the situation of hard-to-recycle waste. Our guides are a local government employee and the staff of Technical Services Zlín, whom the director interviewed and filmed at work. In the local context of an East Moravian municipality, it examines the technical, economic and political aspects of the problem. In addition, there are the inevitable social issues regarding the wider sustainability of the contemporary consumer lifestyle.
