«Great Poetry» tells the story of two guys working as collectors. For several years they have been transporting other people's money. They dream to visit a poetic club in the House of Culture and to see the cockfights in the local campus for migrant workers. In the whole world they have no one but each other. It is not easier for an outsider to understand their relationship than to dig a concrete wall with a plastic spoon.
