Each month a couple on the Danish island of Mandø take in Polish children from Silesia, where life-threatening pollution has resulted from decades of heavy industry. In the center of the City is placed a large factory and not a City Hall or a park, as we see it in other European cities. Mandø’s pristine nature is in stark contrast to the strongly industrialised Silesia, which by many is called the Triangle of Death. Here the death rate of children is eight times greater than in Scandinavia. The film unit accompanied the children when they returned home to investigate the area where 4½ million people live in the shadow of death.
