By building an iron fence across the beautiful region of Kupa, Slovenia has made Croatia a sort of buffer against the influx of refugees from Bosnia trying to reach Europe. This fence has changed the local people’s way of life. The region has become an arena where, in times of crisis, all human nature’s different faces can be seen. And where the local population must find a way to cope with this situation in order to survive.
