Synopsis

Each night, in Wagah, crossing along the more than 3,000 km India-Pakistan border, becomes the locus of an exceptional event. Crowds of people observe the symbolic spectacle of the closing of the border. In contrast to its tenor, this peculiar "festival” seen through the eyes of 3 young DVD sellers, represents the lone daily moment when, at least symbolically, the 2 nations are rejoined.
