Dian was 6 when she heard a rumbling as a tsunami of mud hurtled towards her village. 7 years later, thousands still futilely seek reparation from a powerful mining company.

16 villages disappeared from the face of the earth and 60,000 people had to move, their homes remaining forever buried under mud. This catastrophe in East Java occurred in 2006 when a gas mining company disturbed a hot mud deposit, which erupted to the surface, subsequently destroying everything in its path. However, the company’s owner is one of the richest and most influential people in Indonesia. Additionally, when he enters politics, it seems that the justified claims of the affected have no chance. This visually impressive film tracks the persistent but seemingly hopeless long-term battle of the villagers over several years.
