When injustice becomes the law, resistance is a duty. Isn‘t it? South Terminal portrays a fictional dystopia that seems threateningly familiar and generates its realism from precisely that fact: it could all happen just like this. A nameless state somewhere in the Mediterranean has long been ruled by crisis. Every day, the country slides deeper into a spiral of poverty and violence. Suddenly, checkpoints guarded by armed militia start appearing and people disappearing. In this situation, a doctor continues to try and do his duty – until he himself ends up in the crosswires of the conflict.
