Audio Tracks 

The lives, dreams and destinies of extraordinary characters unfold amidst the ruins of a semi- abandoned mining town. Music teacher keeps demolishing the city to build a new life for himself and his family; miner-turned-actor lives in a limbo unable to make a decision between his passion (theater) and money (working at the mines); and two malnourished champion athletes have to keep running just to survive.
