They are the homeless of Belgrade. They spend their winters in tramway line No 2.

The story is set in the Belgrade city centre, in the tramway no 2. Once a defining border between the city’s elite and the others, the tramway line no 2 now suffers the consequences of the post-war economic and social decline. The reality boards the line, literally: the war refugees, the social dropouts, the jobless, the alcoholics, the beggars, the retired, and the newcomers that could not fit into the new order, all seeking for a sanctuary. Their entire life is packed in their plastic bags. Each one of them started this journey in the unfortunate times of the nineties; each one of them has a history of misfortune. There is no first or the last stop in the line no 2. The passengers go round in circles. In winter the heating works well and they spend most of their time inside; they sleep, eat and drink. The tramway no 2 nickname has been The Tramway Hotel for years now.
