A small coastal area has been destroyed by the construction of industrial facilities. Let's meet the locals, who are either fighting the intrusion or co-exist with it.
A small coastal area has been destroyed by the presence of industrial facilities. The film follows the lives of people who are either fighting for their survival among the dangerous facilities or coexisting with them in harmony. Everyday scenes intertwine with different art performances, depicting the adjustment of people and animals to the degraded environment. The title is a reference to ‘ground zero,’ denoting the location of a bomb explosion or the starting point of an epidemic or disaster. Or it could also serve to interpret the anthropological context of the relationship between human beings, nature and culture, industry and activist ecology. All of these themes intertwine throughout the film.
