About three hundred kilometres north-west of Calcutta lies India’s largest coal mining district. Samdih is a small village that stands on a disused mine. In an attempt to extinguish the remaining fires, the villagers cover them with the detritus and rubble left over from the mine. Now the houses they have built start to shake and highly concentrated, possibly lethal, carbon monoxide has started to leak from the cracks. A team of German researchers decides to extinguish the flames that burn beneath the buildings in an attempt to save the village.
