The film starts with an image of clouds. In the last scene we see the brown coal power station that produces this formation of clouds. In between these two images the film portrays the place, Pesch: empty streets, overgrown ­gardens, harvested fields, “blind” houses. The abandoned place is ­waiting to be excavated, threatened by opencast mining. The film shows a land transformed by the hands of man. The sound comes from the land itself. The series of direct views do not construct a story, but just capture life itself and ask for drawing our own conclusions.
