It is a valuable document and mosaic of life in Belgrade made of stories told by artists, scientists, bohemians, doctors, writers, sportsmen, journalists, musicians and other „ordinary“ and „extraordinary“ citizens of this city and other people who are in some other way connected to it. All of these people like witnesses of our and past times talk about themselves, people and places dear to them, their memories and hopes and all in all about their experience of Belgrade. Initial ideal was to collect interesting stories about Belgrade, but with time this documentary series became a mission of preserving true values and spirit of Belgrade.
