What happens when the dust settles, and a charged conflict about a community’s future has been lost? In a mining town in the north part of Sweden we witness a melancholic, humorous and sometimes absurd last epoch of a place. Cracks in time have emerged due to the resources beneath the ground and the past seems reluctant to let go of the people who still wander on its battered body.
