1989 in the countryside: party forgotten, party imagined, but crystal clear.

In 1989 in Romania, anti-communist revolution was taking place on the streets of the big cities. But all around the country, people were waiting, in fear, with contained excitement, in their trained paranoia, for something to change. In the small hunter’s village of Stremt, news travelled slowly. So slow in fact that only after they saw Ceausescu flee on television they decided to start their own revolution. Each man had a rifle and a theory, but most importantly, a cellar stacked with home-made alcohol. Soon enough, every neighbour behind a fence was a terrorist. Twenty-two years later, the documentary follows what people thought they did, what they think they should have done, and how they would have been better off if they had done it differently.
