Directed by: Tiha K. Gudac
PHOTOGRAPHY: Darko Herič, Thomas Szacka-Marie
Synopsis:

Kad je Slovenija postavila željeznu ogradu na području uz rijeku Kupu, Hrvatska je postala tampon zona za priljev izbjeglica koji dolaze iz Bosne i Hercegovine, pokušavajući stići do Zapadne Europe. Ograda je dovela do smanjenja turističkih aktivnosti i stvorila sasvim novu dinamiku tog područja. Ono sada privlači nacionaliste s ekstremne desnice, aktiviste za ljudska prva, političare, policijske ophodnje i graničnu policiju, migrante i izbjeglice na putu prema Europi.
