Valley of the Widows
There is land destroyed by man, a country with no future where none would like to return, apart from one woman seeking her little paradise.
The small Romanian village located in the isolated Transylvanian valley has been sinking into toxic sludge for decades. It’s constantly flooded by increasing mud from a nearby copper mine. Thousands of tons of waste flow into the valley every day. Near the tailings pond, mostly old widows and one younger woman named Valerica live there. Valerica ran away from her family and moved into an abandoned house inherited from her father. She drew a line behind her past and now she’s trying to live anew. In the surreal ruins of a devastated landscape, which is constantly being buried by increasing mud, Valerica finds her private place on Earth.
