“The Fence” is a very political and highly topical story: it takes place on the northern border of a Europe that continues to seal itself off every day a bit more because of the urgent refugee crisis. This is where Frontex soldier Julian Kleinert is on duty, angry and frustrated because he has been transferred there for severe misconduct. But the supposedly boring post in the north proves to be the hotspot of a new crisis: Russia is trying to destabilize its Baltic neighbour with small pinpricks, the tensions between the United States of Europe and Russia are growing every day. When Julian gets word by an informant that his superior, Major Fechner, is a sleeping Russian agent, he sees his huge chance to rehabilitate himself. By all means he tries to get behind the secret of the majoress and finally faces the conflict: should soldier obey orders or, in case of doubt, refuse them and save the world.
