Transnistra is an intimate and vital account of love and friendship in a complex, contradictory world. The director follows a group of young people as they move from a sweltering, carefree summer through an unforgiving winter in the self-proclaimed state of Transnistria, where the national flag still holds the hammer and sickle.
