The workers' and mining facilities, characterising and changing Trbovlje for more than a century and a half, which have already been captured on camera in the previous films shot by EN-KNAP, have to face uncertain future and the possibility of impending demolition. In this homage by the author Iztok Kovač to his birth town, the international dance group EnKnapGroup confronts the mining facilities

The workers' and mining facilities, characterising and changing Trbovlje for more than a century and a half, which have already been captured on camera in the previous films shot by EN-KNAP, have to face uncertain future and the possibility of impending demolition. In this homage by the author Iztok Kovač to his birth town, the international dance group EnKnapGroup confronts the mining facilities for the last time, before they disappear from the collective consciousness forever. The parting is decent: for the last time the members of the group fill these places with vitality and life as they experience it themselves.

V plesnem filmu VAŠHAVA se prepletajo tako likovni, zvočni, kot plesni elemeni v (verjetno) sklepno zgodbo sodelovanja med ustvarjalci filma s Sašom Podgorškom in plesno skupino En-Knap. Sozvočje vseh elementov v filmsko prepričljivo celoto pa je omogočil prav montažni kreativni proces, ki je eden izmed bolj pomembnih filmskih elementov filma VAŠHAVA.
