    • Synopsis
    • Stan loses citizenship for a political joke that tells in his dictatorial country when he is 16 years old. After finding no hospitality in any country in Europe, he falls into a prison for refugees in Sofia. Six years lying there without actually having a break. Since there is nowhere to be deported, nobody knows what awaits him. In his frustration, he decided to escape and founded his own new country on an abandoned platform in the Black sea with the help of 3 refugees: Ahmed, Starly and Option.
      Arriving on the platform with water wheel, Joanne appears to be living there. The hermit is opposed to the invaders, but no one wants to go back where a severe punishment or even a death sentence is waiting for them.
      Egoism, greed, vanity and lack of tolerance threaten to turn this piece of metal into danger for themselves.
