A film by Piet Oomes
Crystal is the story of the Suikerbuurt in Hoogkerk, a little village next to the city Groningen, obscured by the smoke coming from the factory. The vagaries of life and faith are weighed against the progressing times and the beet campaign seasons in the sugar factory which rapidly follow each other. It's a story in portraits of people; parents and their children. About hope, pain, expectations and hardship.
