Angel in Doel, An

Facing the advancing Antwerp docks, the village of Doel and its few remaining inhabitants struggle against the inevitable.

As the village of Doel dies a slow death in the shadow of the megalithic Antwerp docks, the elderly Emilienne tries to continue with her everyday life. But the village pastor Verstraete dies and Emilienne’s friends leave. Ultimately she is forced to let go as well.
