NATO has been present in the Baltic states and Poland since 2017. They are there to defend the Alliance’s eastern flank and repel a potential Russian attack. The film follows the task force in the small Lithuanian town of Rukla. In a place where east meets west, everyone has an opinion. For Bundeswehr soldier Nina Russia is still an enemy without a name. Mayor of Rukla, Vilma has been training her family in paramilitary defense tactics since 2014. For Georgi and his wife Marytje all this is Western propaganda. Film-maker Steffi Wurster succeeds in portraying many different personal perspectives. Rather than clashing, they seem understandable and equally important. But then the war in Ukraine escalates and the previous certainties about the status quo in Europe cease to exist.
