One of the strangest borders of Europe lies between Moldova and the de facto autonomous region of Transnistria, which serves as a hostage for larger geopolitical interests. Three soldiers keep watch in the trilateral border post. The parties to the conflict, Moldavia, Transnistria and Russia are under one roof here. Not a particularly dramatic situation - rather a kind of waiting for Godot and a parable for positive coexistence of the different population groups. Starting from the microcosm of the post, a description of the state of one of the strangest borders on the edge of Europe unfolds. The Berlin-based filmmaker Steffi Wurster also works as a stage designer and in her documentary film projects deals with places and their political and cultural inscriptions.
