Each night the only border crossing between India and Pakistan on a 1000-km stretch becomes the sight of an extraordinary event.  Thousands of people gather to witness the ritual closing of the border, after which the masses get as close as possible to the gate to greet their former neighbours.  This daily ritual provides the means for three kids to supplement their family’s income by selling DVDs.  Won the Jury and Audience Award at the Hamburg International Short Film Festival.
