Near us, in former mines, on mountain tops, on housing estates and at railway stations, nature takes back what man stole. This wildlife film-essay focuses on the resilient power and variety of Czech nature. Within the environment of open cast brown coalmines and spoil tips reminiscent of a lunar landscape, one finds paradoxically a true tale of an impregnable wild countryside. For most people, it is a symbol of an ecological catastrophe, same as the abandoned industrial complexes, former army training ranges, or dense woods gobbled up by the bark beetle. But for nature, they are untamed spots which bring with them a process of recuperation and self-preservation. Just beyond our backyard, we see everyday dramas of animals and plants taking place which tend to fascinate us in films that come from the far reaches of our planet.
