PMR. In the State of Limbo
There is an unrecognized state in the middle of Europe called Transnistria. For 21 years, the irreplaceable president Igor Smirnov has waved back from the tribunes of the capital of this self-appointed state. Under his charismatic leadership, the construction of a sovereign state on the ruins of the Soviet Union has run aground. Internationally Transnistria hasn’t been recognized yet and the wishful dream relies completely on alms from Russia. The presidential elections are coming and the oppositional candidates appear on the half-finished construction site to each present a plan how to build a proper house out of a leaning wreckage. The fight for leadership of this invisible country quickly becomes an emotional one.
