    • Synopsis
    • In Crow Lake, the four boys find shelter from the rules imposed by adults in a derelict ex-Soviet military base located alongside a NATO air base. It has become no-man’s-land; bygone military secrets lie buried beneath its bunkers and hangars as modern fighter-jets fly overhead. The children proclaim the territory their ‘Freedom Zone’: a place where no one can inhibit them. The boys build their own hang-glider in one of the abandoned hangars and prepare for the day they will fly it. Meanwhile, an odd vagabond seeks shelter in no-man’s-land. The boys dub him ‘The Bum’ and brazenly drive him out of the ‘Freedom Zone’. A ‘territorial war’ is declared and the ensuing conflict reveals the children’s differing characters and callings.
