In 2011 Russia has started the so-called " borderization" - the installation of artificial barriers such as barbed wire, signs or fences along the occupation line. With this creeping shift of borders, the local population is deprived of their land, crops and homes, and a new wave of internally displaced people is sweeping the country. Moreover, the arrest of local residents for "illegal border crossing" by the Russian FSB has almost become a habit: More than 1000 people have been arrested since the beginning of the observed "border crossing".

The tower was a landmark and popular meeting place in the village of Kuisi. After the Russian-Georgian war in 2008 it was separated from the village and the inhabitants were resettled. Now they can only watch their village from the top of the tower. The film is part of the project 08.08.08., which collects stories of war experiences.
