In the 1950s Kovásznai worked at the nationalised Hungarian mines and observed, wrote about and made drawings of the life there. While the screenplay constructs a symbolic picture of the depths of the mines, this painting film also applies documentary-like methods in using authentic on-location sound recordings.

Directed by: György Kovásznai
