12:08 east of Bucharest
On the sixteenth year anniversary of the fall of Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, a local anchorman of a nearby provincial town invites two of his acquaintances to share their moments of revolutionary glory on his talk show. One is an impish, insightful retiree who sometimes poses as Santa Claus, the other a henpecked, hard-drinking teacher who has just devoted his entire salary to his drinking debts. Together they will remember the day when they stormed their town hall calling "down with Ceausescu." Or did they?

From Library Staff

In a small town near Bucharest, not only is it not clear what happened during the final days of dictator Ceaușescu, but if the old-timers who claim to have taken part in the events of 1990 were even there. Of course, there is the archival television footage...
