An experimental shale oil essay starring people, industry, and nature. The sounds of music consist of industrial noise, with the image of the language they are transformed into a single entity.
This short trip down the oil shale lane takes us inside the makings of Estonian power source nr. 1. The critically destructive mining supposedly has no alternative as we all want our power sockets to light up and provide us with energy just like they do in Twin Peaks.
