Set in the title Romanian city during the tumultuous fall of Communist dictator Ceaucescu, this documentary chronicles the attempts of government soldiers to quell a citizens revolt. But during the few days of the uprising a surprising thing happened--the soldiers joined the citizens. The filmmakers use interviews, video footage of the events and archival photographs to recreate the rebellion, but due to a lack of explanation within the film, the chronicle will be most useful to historians and those well-informed in recent Eastern European history.
