The revolution which deposed Nicolae Ceausescu began on 17 December 1989 led to the dictator’s death on Christmas day the same year. Between those two events there took place a demonstration on 22 December, which saw a leaderless army pitched against demonstrators determined to regain their lost freedom. Initially undecided as to how to act, the army officers eventually avoided bloodshed by announcing their intention to fraternize with the demonstrators. The film is an account of that famous night through the eyes of those lesser heroes who wrote an important page of modern Romanian history.
