By constructing an iron fence, right through the KUPA region, Slovenia has turned Croatia into a somewhat unwilling buffer zone for the influx of the refugees coming from Bosnia, trying to reach Europe. Because of the fence, the usual way of life has collapsed and a new dynamic was generated. The region has become an arena of different faces of human nature brought forward by a time of crisis, in which the local population needs to find a way to deal with this new situation in order to survive.
