The Lignite company, RWE, becomes the bad men of Momo. The brown coal hole in front of the garden gate to Mordor. Day and night they destroy the scenes of the memories. But then they say: The corporation spares the neighboring village. Suddenly everyone in the village becomes an ally or an enemy. This is about neighborhoods, envy and, of course, money.
