Episode

Time stands still in the small Romanian village of Saschiz in the Mures region. Charcoal burner Vari Domokos, his wife Margareta and his son Csaba leave their small farm every morning to reach their woodpiles in the mountain forests.

They are poor, even poorer than their friends Feketa the lumberjack and Costica and his sons, who are shepherds on the mountain pastures. Demand for charcoal is rising in Europe but charcoal burners can barely survive. 19-year old Csaba would love to move to the city but is very attached to the old charcoal piles and life in the woods. What will he decide?
