In 1841 the pottery factory Royal Boch was founded. The city of La Louvière was built around the factory. In 2011 only one building remains of what once was a gigantic factory site. The open space is like a scar in the landscape of the city. Everyone who lives in La Louvière has a certain link with the factory. Several people talk about why the factory is so important to them and how they are connected to it. Their stories come to life by stop-motion images of the pottery.
