(A fost sau n-a fost?)
22 December 1989 heralded Ceausescu's fall from power in Romania. Sixteen years on, a provincial TV talk show decides to commemorate the event by asking local heroes to reminisce about their own contributions to the revolution. But securing suitable guests proves an unexpected challenge and the producer is left with two less than ideal participants; a drink addled history teacher and a lonely sometime Santa Claus grateful for the company. In the farcical show that follows, the mens' fanciful boasts of rebellious glory are hilariously disputed by phone-ins from viewers who recall an altogether different version of events.
