The First And Last Petrol Station (První a poslední pumpa)

Storyline

Two petrol stations in the middle of Europe. Two non-places. One border. The customers come and go. The petrol station attendants stay. While Theresa grew up at her father's petrol station in Furth im Wald, Bavaria, and now works there, Ján has only been employed at the petrol station in Železná for a few weeks, a few meters from the German-Czech border and the former Iron Curtain. "The First and Last Petrol Station | První a poslední pumpa" is a bilingual documentary about home and borders, about petrol station tourism, Germans and Czechs and life at the petrol station.
