Description

In a time of hard borders and systematic segregation, enigmatic stranger Roman arrives at Checkpoint-4 and attempts to bluff and bribe his way past two incompetent border guards. Daredevil tourist or diehard terrorist? Could the answer lie concealed in the contents of his curiously cumbersome trunk? – 'It's an anomaly. He's an anomaly... he's anomalous!' – A darkly comic drama exploring the absurd logic of xenophobic paranoia... If you're ready to take a shot in the dark, then do not miss this savagely black satire for our times!
