In and around their farm director Piet Hein van der Hoek installed dozens of cameras to record the quakes. It supplied 200000 hours of video material. After the family bought their dreamfarm a big earthquake damaged their shelter very serious. They try to get compensation from Shell/ExxonMobil but it will be a long fight. Can the monumental farm from 1839 thereby preserving for future generations? And there's always fear: 'That in the night you suddenly wake up and thinks there is a quake comes, that in your neighborhood just a farm collapses and that you do not know or your kids safe in their schoolbuilding. The daily conversations go only talking about the quakes, the damage and Shell/ExxonMobil: the quakes go your whole life, that is the worst.

This is the best looking version of the theatrical release. You also get the standard blu-ray with 3 different versions of the film. You can’t go wrong with this package in my opinion.
