A movie about frontiers: 1 = Turkey and 8 = its neighbouring countries. Primarily Kurds live in the two historically randomly separated cities Nusaybin (Turkey) and Al-Quamishli (Syria), but whilst in Turkey the spirit of resistance against the governmental authority prevails, fear and terror of the Assad regime rule Syria. At the borders between Iraq and Iran, the Kurdish identity issue dominates too and at the Georgian and Armenian borders it is apparent that the communist past still affects the present lives of the people.
