Plot of Anthracite

Anthracite explores the twisted aftermath of a mountainous cult’s mass suicide when, 30 years later, a woman is murdered in a similar manner. The mass suicide had taken place in the Alps, near an anthracite mine and a cosy, rustic hamlet, and had made headlines. Protagonist Jaro Gatsi (Hatik) enters the picture as an ex-motocross champion and young offender who wishes to repent for his actions and make a new start.

However, his history and newness in the area create suspicion and soon Jaro finds himself accused of a murder he did not commit. He gets some help from the socially awkward, young ultra-geek, Ida, who has her own set of eccentricities, a good heart, and a purpose. She is in town to investigate the disappearance of her journalist father, who had been abducted while investigating the cult.

Both scratch the others’ backs for their respective purposes. But as the stakes rise and mask-laden figures emerge in town, danger descends on the mountainous village as the truth about the incident thirty years ago is slowly unveiled. As for the answers to their respective problems, Ida and Jaro must look back into the secrets of their past. They had better hurry at it and uncover the mystery before it is too late, as the price may be too heavy to pay otherwise.
