By constructing an iron fence, right through the beautiful KUPA-region, Slovenia has made Croatia somewhat an unwilling buffer for the influx of the refugees coming from Bosnia, trying to reach Europe.
Of cause of the fence, the usual way of life has collapsed and a new dynamic was generated. The region has become an arena of different faces of human nature brought forward by a time of crisis, in which local population needs to find a way to deal with this new situation in order to survive.

The Wire is part of Borderline, a collection of 6 documentary films, made by talented European filmmakers. Each film focus on a prominent and characteristic border that surrounds or divides the European continent.

The series wants to investigate the concept of "borders" by following the footsteps of people who interact with these borders and feel their impact on a daily basis.
