The work is inspired by the U.S. Embassy warning messages I received accidentally over the last few years. They contained information about potential safety problems for American citizens residing in Poland. These problems were exaggerated, they had nothing in common with the real situation in the country. They seemed to me an example of ignorance and double standards and they gave me a slight feeling of surrealism. To describe these impressions I used the images of border crossings with their boring and isolated landscape.
