In 2016 two female filmmakers travelled to Tsumeb, Namibia and Krumovgrad, Bulgaria in order to explore the impacts mining has on small communities. They discovered hopes, dissapointments sucesses and questions about the deeper and longer-term effects. At first glance, the two little towns seem to have very little in common. Just below the surface however, both communities are still coping with a legacy of political and social trauma, and both are outposts of the same Canadian mining company.
