In Septembre 2002, the MAC's, museum for contemporary art in French-speaking Belgium, opened its doors on the mining location of Grand Hornu. The exceptionnal architectural ensemble is hence saved from ruin. For the inhabitants of the neighbourhood, it's a real revolution : their old mine becomes a temple to an art they never heared about.
Contemporary art enters their daily life.
The opening of the museum is an occasion to confront the artist's work with Krystyna, who's both father and husband were mining workers ; with the museum's security man, and others from the region. The film discovers through the eyes of the glad museum runner and of the artists, that art does finds its way to people.
