Welcome to Transnistria.
Transnistria is a thin strip of land between the Moldovan river Dniestr and the Ukranian border.
After claiming independence in 1990, and breaking free from Moldova in 1992, the country is not recognized by the UN, but has its own parliament, government, military, police and currency. In Transnistria, the old Sovietic values are still nurtured in full scale. It´s still USSR-time.
«Good morning Transnistria» is a portrait of the country through the life of Oxana and Victor. Oxana is a naïve and optimistic teacher, Victor is a tombstone dealer and regime opponent. Through their lives, we discover what it is to live in this akward place, probably the only country in Europe you never heard of!
