25 years after the fall of the Iron Curtain, the border still exists as division in income and life standards of Europeans.

SYNOPSIS

Since the border between Austria and Hungary became a Schengen border it seems to have lost its meaning. Therefore the border stations, among the small border crossing in Nickelsdorf/Hegyeshalom are being removed. But the border persists culturally and socially, based on historically grown resentments and the new European laws.

25 jaar na de val van het IJzeren Gordijn is de grens nog steeds merkbaar in het inkomen en de levensstandaard van de Europeanen.

VERHAAL
Sinds het optrekken van de grens tussen Oostenrijk en Hongarije lijkt de Schengen-grens haar doel te hebben verloren. Daarom zijn de grensstations, waaronder de kleine grensovergang in Nickelsdorf/Hegyeshalom, opgeheven. Maar cultureel en sociaal, op basis van historisch gegroeide wrok en de nieuwe Europese wetten, blijft de grens bestaan.
