Plot Summary
Romanian urban legends from the chaotic rule of Nicolae Ceausescu are examined in several vignettes. A Communist Party activist (Calin Chirila) blindly follows the rules despite not really knowing them. An inspector (Emanuel Parvu) travels to a small town to make sure it is ready to receive Ceausescu, despite not knowing if he's actually coming. Grigore (Vlad Ivanov), a truck driver, is confused when Camelia (Tania Popa) offers to buy eggs that were laid in the back of his van.
