Pernik, the wild bulgarian West

Nowadays and for some years, mafias operate in the city that control the illegal extraction of coal in small mines in the city forest. The mines are holes excavated in the ground taking advantage of the fact that the coal is at a very superficial level. The documentary has unpublished images of illegal working miners, hard to get by the mafia that surrounds coal mining in the city. There are also testimonies of those involved in the fight and those affected by the sinking of houses into illegal tunnels against illegal mines
