Over the course of seven years, we watch the citizens of the small medieval town of Kremnica battle the local and international mining companies that are trying to extract gold and minerals from the nearby mountains, which also contain many rare, natural habitats. As a result, the beautiful Kremnickévrchy mountain range is slowly turning into a moonscape. The film reveals how Slovakia lacks an institution that can protect nature or force these companies to reclaim the environment they destroyed.
