One of Europe's strangest borders lies between the Republic of Moldova and the de facto autonomous region of Transnistria, which is being held hostage by larger geopolitical interests. Three soldiers stand guard at this trilateral checkpoint. The factions in this conflict, Moldova, Transnistria and Russia, gather here under one roof. 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 this station, life at one of the strangest borders on the edge of Europe unfolds.
