Picior de Porc 3lei/kg

In Bucharest, a poor young man takes the last money he has to go and buy a pig’s foot, the only kind of food he can afford. After getting out of the store he is robbed by a homeless man, and they start to chase each other through the opulent and fancy historical center of Bucharest. The homeless man finally escapes hiding in a cave in Cismigiu park and enjoys his meal, but little does he know that not even he isn’t the last link in this “food chain”.
