Long before the super hi-way was built, when border controls were routine and the euro had not yet come into existence, Brenner was a boomtown.Today the town's population has plummeted. Who are the people that still live here? What's brought them to this place? What makes them stay? 47° North is not about digging up the past, but a photographic diary that provides a glimpse of life in a very peculiar setting.
