Early Sixties. The Soviet Union and the United States are dominant superpowers in the post-war world order. Conflicting ideologies and a dangerous nuclear arms race bring the two enemies to a constant confrontation. A rule against which all disputes must stop is mutually accepted: don’t meddle with what the enemy does in its territory. That includes watching the other build a wall to divide a city in two.



I’ve got my side, you’ve got yours
We keep an eye open wide indoors
I know it’s cold and we walk in pairs
Better a wall than a hot full war

The logic is cyclical
It’s shining iron, systematic
The logic is cynical
It takes a phase and makes it critical
