Germany / 2021 / 30'
Long ago, Geamăna was a Romanian village in the Apuseni Mountains, home to about 1000 people. Today, only the church spire rises from the poisonous mud of a neighbouring copper mine. Almost all the houses have sunk and their inhabitants fled. Only a few people held on to their home. On the edge of the past, Valeria Praţa strives for her present – and is threatened by the future.
