Mark – newly commissioned guard, freshly out of academy is ordered to serve at the desolated frontier post in the middle of a vast woodland. Only those with travel permit are allowed to pass through the barrier guarded by Mark and his Superior. First day of service is interrupted when a young couple with a child arrives at the border. The husband is missing a travel permit for him and the child but refuses his wife to travel alone. He tries to convince Mark to turn a blind eye and let them all through but to no avail. As a last resource they decide to camp at the barrier.
