    • Synopsis
    • Against the lethargic backdrop of a defunct rail transhipment station at the Slovak-Ukrainian border, we follow the stories of four protagonists who strive to break the vicious, immutable cycle of life on the social periphery, armed only with their unwavering desire for happiness. Desire alone does not guarantee success, nor the propriety of the protagonists' decisions.
      The characters in this film find their own ways to navigate the dysfunctional system, often skittering along the edge of the law and common sense, but their stories are all the more genuine, expressive, and human. Their everyday reality is the town of Čierna nad Tisou - once called the 'Golden Gate of Socialism', now little more than a smuggling den at the Eastern European border.
