Šabac Fair – the biggest of the sort in Yugoslavia – is a Balkans festival which lasts for three days and three nights. Buying and selling cattle, cars, clothes, wine and rakia in the chaotic atmosphere created by music bands, singers and trumpet players. Here you can see a circus with lions and elephants, illusionists and conmen. The documentary tells a story about the Fair employees, who mark lots to tradesmen and funfair shop owners and observe order during the fair.
