Plot synopsis
Each morning for the last 25 years Zhenia, a hereditary beach photographer, and his new camel that he bought somewhere in the Kalmyk steppes, go out to work into the world of the nude, or rather the naked in the direct and figurative sense of the word. We se a gallery of characters making up a unique portrait of the state of the contemporary world in which we live. The film is full of irony and sadness, human purity ad baseness. We will see the unrolling story of love and betrayal, life and death.
