The game Papers, please was the discovery of 2013, at least when it comes to independent titles, and its interesting, cold-war climate from behind the eastern part of the Iron Curtain has now been transferred to another medium. A group of filmmakers, in cooperation with the creator of the game, Lucas Pop, created a short film showing the hard life of a border guard in a fictional Arstotzka. Nikita and Liliya Ordynskiy worked on the film. The main character is an employee of one of the fictitious, totalitarian countries of the Eastern Bloc. His task is to check documents of people trying to cross the border and decide who will be able to receive this honor. His work is made difficult not only by paperwork, but also by his own conscience.
