Filmed in black and white, this animated film is a critique of the years of Soviet domination of Czechoslovakia. It is based on the graphic novel trilogy, written by Jaroslav Rudiš and illustrated by Jaromír 99. Set in an isolated train station in a forest, on the border with Germany and Poland; the innovative rotoscoping film technique creates a sense of melancholia and dread.
