A young artist Mariana Marin is planning to reconstruct a historical event from 1941, during which the Romanian Administration through the Romanian Army carried out an ethnic massacre on the Eastern Front. Thе film ingeniously updates Hannah Arendt’s incisive work on the banality of evil. Employing an uncompromising narrative form à la Godard, it demonstrates that committing brutal acts is not the only path to barbarism, for even a mere stunted conscience is enough to lead a person to it.
