The end of the Cold War did not cause a definitive thaw in the former republics of the Soviet Union, so today there are several frozen conflicts, unresolved for decades, in that vast territory. As in Transnistria, an unrecognized state, secessioned from Moldova since 1990. Kolja is a silent witness to how borders and bureaucracy shape the lives of citizens, finally forced to lose their identity.
