It's the 22nd of December. 16 years have passed since the Revolution. Piscoci, an old retired man, is getting ready to spend another Christmas all by himself. Manescu, a teacher of history, tries not to give away his entire salary on the debts he has. Jderescu, the owner of the local TV station, doesn't seem to be interested in the holy days. The time has come for him to face the history. Together with Piscoci and Manescu, he wants to find an answer to a 16 years old question: "Was it a revolution in their town or not?"
