In Eastern Serbia, in a town with a dual identity divided between magic and industry, a family whose destiny is tied to both does their best to ensure the survival of their culture. Lifelong miner Dragan Markovic is the last in a line of dragon hunters, while his sister Desa is the widow of the union leader who is trying to continue his legacy by ensuring the rights of fellow mine-worker families.
