Just a few kilometers east from the European Union border, right between Moldova and Ukraine, lies Pridniestrovian Moldovan Republic. Thin strip of a land on the left bank of the Nistru river with 518 000 citizens is not recognized by any other country. On this officially non existing territory a professional film has never been shot. Framed by the time of presidential election, Fortress focuses on a couple of characters being stuck in this Geopolitical gap, in between European Union and Russia, in between capitalist present and soviet past, crime and decency, decadence and hope for change.
