Mike returns home after time away. He attempts to anchor himself into the social dynamics of family and friends. The mining landscape of Genk offers unusual openings.

Set in the deindustrialised mining city of Genk, the film encounters the masculine dynamics in a working class family. Moving between these social codes, Terril unearths hidden fragilities.
