There is land destroyed by man. A place with no future where no one would want to return. Apart from one woman who seeks for her place on Earth.
The small Romanian village Geamăna located in the Transylvanian valley has been sinking into toxic sludge for almost 40 years. It’s being buried by the increasing mud from nearby opencast mining. Thousands of tonnes of waste flow into the valley every day. Near to a tailings pond there live only a few widows and one young woman Valerica.
Valerica ran away from her despotic husband and moved into an abandoned house inherited from her father. She has drawn a line behind her past life. In the scenery of a devastated surreal landscape, Valerica tries to live anew and finds her own little paradise.
