Eleven-year-old Yula lives in Svalka, Europe’s biggest landfill, located 20 km outside of Moscow. Walled off and manned, the area is supposed to be free of any intruders. The group of people living inside these walls is a small community that effectively has no rights. They are Yula’s closest family. This is where she lives her life, this is where she dreams of a future far from the landfill.
