"[A] charmingly told first feature, works confidently within a traditional, anecdotal storytelling framework, enlivened by young Dorotheea Petre's luminous performance."
– Deborah Young, Variety

Synopsis

Executive Produced by Martin Scorsese and Wim Wenders. Bucharest 1989 – the last year of Ceausescu's dictatorship. Eva, 17, lives with her parents and her 7-year-old brother Lalalilu. One day at school, Eva and her boyfriend accidentally break a bust of Ceausescu. They are forced to confess their crime before a disciplinary committee. Eva is expelled from school and transferred to a reform school. There she meets Andrei and decides to escape Romania with him. Convinced that Ceausescu is the main reason for Eva's decision to leave, Lalalilu, along with his friends from school, devises a plan to kill the dictator.
