When Kapka Kassabova was a child, the fragile border zone between Bulgaria, Turkey and Greece swarmed with soldiers, spies and fugitives seeking to cross from East to West. Today, this densely forested landscape is still scarred by its past. Here, Kassabova journeys to meet the people of this border – treasure hunters and guards, entrepreneurs and psychic healers, refugees and smugglers – tracing the physical and psychological borders that intersect its villages and mountains, seeking out the stories that will unlock its secrets.
