Synopsis

The Baltic states are preparing to embark on the construction of the grandest and most expensive objects of infrastructure ever built in this region. The Rail Baltica railway line and the Talsinki tunnel will connect the Baltic states to Western Europe and Finland, thus linking the entire European Union into a single transport network. But two journalists come into the possession of classified documents indicating the project is plagued by countless problems. As they investigate, they uncover more and more shocking facts regarding political power struggles, internal schemes and conflicts, corruption, possible intelligence activity, international security risks and negligence. Will a project that could become a symbol for the integration of the entire European Union turn into the biggest failure in the history of this alliance? Or will the greed and carelessness of the responsible bureaucrats be defeated by a common effort to reach the noble goal?
