How does fear and corruption bend down an entire society? How easy does one give up his freedom? Is there a way to avoid being an instrument of propaganda? Radio Free Europe broadcast its music and pro-democracy propaganda across the Iron Curtain. As millions of listeners tuned in Ceausescu's strong men worked to bring about its demise. Employing Carlos the Jackal to help bring about RFE's demise, Ceausecu's secret war included bombs and radiation attacks. Director Alexandru Solomon (The Great Communist Bank Robbery) explores the paralyzing atmosphere of fear in 1980s Romania, and the failure of society to act collectively against the Ceausescu dictatorship. This is the unique story of a love and hate triangle built around something one cannot see, touch or weigh: radio waves.
