A documentary portrait of two women playing a very personal game with the fate of Horni Jiretin, a town endangered by the coal-mining industry. With their typical mixture of a sensitive approach and irony, the filmmakers present the case under the guidance of the two women; press agent of the mining company and chatelaine/eco-activist. Their personal stories mirror the current danger of total liquidation of Horni Jiretin, a small town that stands in the way of the coalmining process.
