"It has been 20 years since the world watched spellbound, as the Berlin Wall came down. In the euphoria that followed, it seemed as if walls were a thing of the past, especially in the new era of globalization.

This documentary focuses on three hot spots: the wall separating Israel and the West Bank, the "Tortilla Wall" between the United States and Mexico and the walls that protect Fortress Europe."--Filmoption International website
