Individuals are anxiously trying to read off their destiny and their chances in future. This is a story about arduous everyday life, anxiety, plans and dreams of popular dairywomen from Zagreb’s green markets. The popular cottage cheese with cream they are selling could either become a Croatian brand or could disappear due to new rules and regulations. How does the world politics affect the lives of these people and their families? Do they and their cheese have future?
