CHARBON traces back how Europe built itself upon the fossil fuels inside and outside of Europe during the last 100 years. At the same time CHARBON brings a very personal family portrait of filmmakers Manu Riche and Hayder Helo - Manu as the son of a coal mining treaty in Europe, Hayder the result of a petrol war in Iraq.
