Summary

A documentary film on the search for happiness in an unhappy area loosely connected to the film One Year (1999). The new film maps an area of the Czech Republic called “disfigured part of the country” – the mining area in the slopes of the Ore Mountains. The director presents individual human stories in this backdrop of a moonscape, devastated by the mining of brown coal.
