December 22. It’s been sixteen years since the Revolution and Christmas is approaching. Pisconi, an old retiree, is preparing to spend another lonely Christmas. Manescu, a history teacher, doesn’t want to lose his entire salary to pay his debts. Jderescu, the owner of the local TV station, doesn’t seem very interested in vacation.
