In Petrila, a mining town in Transylvania, Romania, an ex-miner turned artist and activist uses art and absurdity to stop the local authorities from demolishing the historical buildings of the oldest mine in the country. His purpose is not only to keep the history and identity of his hometown alive, but to find new means to prevent the disintegration of the local community.
