    • Synopsis
    • Miah is a guy from Bangladesh. He has been living in Italy for six years, and after many difficulties he has decided to register himself a VAT number to become a legal peddler. At night he wanders the streets covered from head to toe with objects for sale. From elephant shaped key tags to balls that glow in the dark, from battery chargers to USB converters, from electronic massage devices to megaphones. Months on end Miah works to be able to send money to Bangladesh on a regular basis, where his wife Beauty and his son Zuvar live, to whom he has just promised his first bike. This month however, Miah has not sent any money and has not contacted his family. A video made by Miah himself, in which he secretly captures his night time activities, is his confession to his wife explaining the reasons of his silence and telling about the hard time he is having in Italy.
