A tour guide, a military man, a bank clerk, an aircraft mechanic and dozens of other restless men from all over Ukraine gather every autumn in Uman to work during the Hasidic pilgrimage for the Rosh Hashanah holiday. For four days, tens of thousands of Hasidim in a festive mood, with songs, dances and a huge amount of luggage, come to this tiny town in a continuous stream. For four days, local "porters" sleep for 3 hours in makeshift halabuds on the side of the road, and the rest of the time they carry tons of cargo on themselves in order to earn their two-month salary in a short time. Along the way, they constantly have to seek mutual understanding with an almost "alien" client and with each other. But it’s hard to upset them with something, because they are sure: “God knows what he is doing.”
