A reputable writer is struggling with the ghosts of his family while a group of dreamers at the top of the hill suffering from ill health hope for happiness. One of them, a successful entrepeneur, reconsiders her career upon seeing the rise of her daughter's budding career as a singer. Doubts also torture an underwater construction worker who wants to show his son the dark and mysterious lake. All these people live in Sostanj, where the largest thermal power plant in Slovenia has been operating for decades. The construction of a new power plant, marked by corruption, financial dirty dealing and environmental damage has extended its existence in the coming decades. In the lake nearby, artificially created through coal excavation and resulting in the sinking of the old part of town, lie the memories of its inhabitants – and perhaps even signs of its future.
