Why is it so important to have a place called home? Doel is a ghost town in Belgium surrounded by a nuclear power plant, a gigantic container dock, and the port of Antwerp. For decades the inhabitants have been battling the authorities who want to tear the town down and build a new container dock. Now there is only 26 inhabitants left – a colorful crowd of common and uncommon people clinging onto the idea of keeping their vandalized and abandoned town alive. “Doel” is a quirky, poetic, and humourous portrait of the remaining inhabitants and their struggle with Dutch techno ravers, curious urban explorers, and political havoc.
