In October 1989 a high school student in Bucharest is apprehended for putting up anti-regime posters and is imprisoned in a secret police building for a number of days. As a result, his family, loved ones, friends, and schoolmates are affected by restrictions. Twenty years later at their class reunion, a journey begins into the memories of that moment of shock, experience differently for everyone involved. Director Gabriel Tempea is specifically interested in exploring how and where collective and individual memory is created, and also its mutability over time and through present recollection. The film is a postmodern exploration into collating a form of oral history based on testimony.
