The documentary begins as an investigation into the architect who created an iconic fence that now covers 40% of Eurasia. This rhombic design can be seen everywhere from Russia to Ukraine to Afghanistan, which takes film maker Yana Osman to confront her own cross cultural differences as a child of Ukrainian/Afghani parents. «This is my journey from material fences to metaphorical fences through my three homelands – Afghanistan, Russia and Ukraine in an attempt to answer the question: “Who creates fences?”».
