In reality, a world without logic, all that is left is the ability to document the fleeting moments and people. Once a week, over a period of two years, the directors headed to the streets to watch the routine of life during war. In its coarse and watchful manner, the film introduces an impressionistic collection of small moments of existence. "Shooting days" is actually meditative view on life, the violent reality and human fight for survival.
