A political satire about populism and its absurd consequences. In spring 2016, Austrian politicians fear an onslaught of war refugees via Italy and announce a new border fence. The residents fear the fence just as much as the supposedly threatening alienation of their homeland. At the end of the film, the fence is still curled up in the container, as the feared refugee rush never materialized.
