The story about how our phones are connected to illegal mining in Congo. Every time we communicate through our cell phones we are associated with the crimes in Congo. Congo is a country of many natural resources but instead of causing Congo wealth, these resources have ended up fuelling the bloodiest war. 5 million people have died, estimated 300.000 women have been raped.

The film focuses on the mineral cassiterite, which is used for the production of all kinds of electronic devices - including mobile phones. This film shows a mine in Bisie - one of the largest and most notorious illegal mines in the region. It happens frequently that some of the mineshafts collapse and miners are being buried alive. Child labor, prostitution of under age girls and lack of rights and protection of miners are some of the conditions around the mining operations of cassiterite.The money from the minerals is financing the war in the region.

Film daje do myślenia. Podziwiam odwagę twórcy, który pojechał do DR Konga i nawet zszedł pod ziemię do kopalni, żeby dojść do prawdy. (maciejziarko)
Zejścia do szybu, współczesnego jądra ciemności, to najmocniejszy moment filmu ( (ikaag)
