On September 22nd 2013, two filmmakers relocate 50 angry young people to a village, into an imaginary near-future, when Romania is no longer a state but a private enterprise. Exposed fully frontal to the imminent bulldozing of the entire village, the participants get positioned as either attackers or defenders of Romania Enterprise. But the arrival of the bulldozer suddenly destabilizes the core identities of the ones involved: the victim becomes the aggressor, the director becomes the dictator and the dictator becomes the negotiator. A film that equates the democracy sham of the Romanian state and the production politics of cinema.
