A famous Siemens-Martin furnace in former large steel mill in Sisak is now being dismantled by the workers’ sons...

The film depicts the remnants of the once prominent steel industry in Sisak and documents the dismantling and cutting of the famous Siemens-Martin furnace that used to be the centre of the former steel mill. This furnace helped the workers break the steelmaking world record several times. Not hiding their emotions, the workers' children slowly destroy the furnace and load its remains onto a truck leaving the mill.
