Roșia Montană has been thrown into a state of disarray ever since the arrival of a Romanian gold mining corporation with powerful Canadian shareholders. The corporation is planning on razing a large portion of the town and its surroundings to the ground in order to gain access to the rock there, which happens to hold the largest gold deposits in Europe. The people are poised to lose their homes, but a small group of inhabitants are battling against the Company and defending their homes with all they have.
