Documentary about the municipality of Heerlen and its surroundings. As the beginning of this documentary reports, the population of Heerlen has tripled over the past decade due to the arrival of the mining industry. The film continues with a panoramic shot of Heerlen and its surroundings: we see several coal mines in rural South Limburg. Heerlen is portrayed as a bustling, dynamic city where modern life is making a quick ascent. Yet its traditional character still remains: the Roman church, a funeral procession, and picturesque vistas in the old centre. The scenic countryside of South Limburg is a prominent feature.
