Set on the backdrop of a seemingly unassuming dispute between the citizens of three small villages in Eastern Slovakia and a big American oil company, we observe how the voice of one individual transforms from a droll yelp to a fundamental attitude towards life. The earth is full of treasures, yet everyone sees values in something else. For the locals, true wealth lies in simple cohabitation with the earth, but for investors, it lies hundreds of meters below it. The locals are bound by their desire to protect their sanctuary. The investors want to drill for oil. What will come out of this clash?
