Transnistria has its own president and currency, but has not been recognized by a single foreign nation. Not even by Russia, which in 1992 ended the conflict with Moldova with a military intervention. Its economy is supported by Russia’s humanitarian aid, while the political circumstances worsen. Meelis Muhu’s film follows the 2011 presidential elections, and the re-election aspirations of Smirnov. It paints a striking picture of a region whose political system is based on old threats.
