As the girls float deeper into die woods, cracks develop in the three girls' relationship. Is there more than friendship between Alja and Zana? Does Simona harbour a secret sympathy for the Guardian and what he stands for?
With nowhere to turn, the three girls must decide: what is a border worth crossing and what is just an imaginary line?
The story is based on personal experience, but only up to a certain point. And then was the border.
It took me 6 years to overcome all the borders to family make this film.
