Bucharest 1959. Five high-ranking Jewish members of the Romanian Communist party and heroes of the resistance plan and carry out a spectacular bank robbery. They divert the attention of onlookers by pretending to be shooting a movie. They are arrested, tried, convicted and sentenced to death but not before being forced to reenact the robbery in a fake propaganda film. An opportunity they immediately seize to turn their absurd predicament into a comedy. This is a true story.

“Shot in English with a name British and American cast, this surprisingly entertaining black comedy and absurdist take on real events will connect with audiences.” Variety
