On the sixteenth year anniversary of the fall of Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, a local anchorman of a nearby provincial town invites two of his acquaintances to share their moments of revolutionary glory on his talk show. One is an impish, insightful retiree who sometimes poses as Santa Claus, the other a henpecked, hard-drinking teacher who has just devoted his entire salary to his drinking debts. Together they will remember the day when they stormed their town hall calling "down with Ceausescu." Or did they?

This an even better "shaggy dog story" than his later "The Treasure" but with a lesser ending soundtrack (How could you have a better credits soundtrack than the Laibach version of "Life is Life"?)
The style could be compared to the best of Kaurismaki (Match Factory Girl, Ariel) but with a lesser amount of fatalism.
