Synopsis

A drama set in the summer of 1989, the final year of communism in Eastern Europe, inspired by a childhood memory of crossing the border – not only between countries, but between the instinctive world of nature and the incomprehensible world of the adults. The story follows paths dictated by the little girl's attention going from the bees buzzing around, to the rising tension between her parents, to the frightening border guard pacing along the queue. As the heat rises and the atmosphere thickens, can the little girl melt the border guard's icy heart?
