The otherwise flat city of Charleroi is defined by slag heaps – hills formed from the waste from coal mines. Filmed entirely from these 'terrils', the film weaves large-scale industrial tragedy with the poetics of ecological rebirth through a data-driven narration in which the terrils are the protagonists.
