Cum mi-am petrecut sfarsitul lumii

The Way I Spent the End of the World

When Eva‘s boyfriend Alex accidentally-on-purpose smashes a bust of Ceaușescu, she is kicked out of school and sent to a camp for kids who do not conform. Singled out and harassed by her new classmates, Eva responds with smiles and learns to enjoy her new heterogeneous environment. – The story is set in a poor district on the rural edges of Bucharest. Eva becomes close to Andrei, a neighbour whose parents are rumoured to have opposed the government, and together they forge the plan of swimming the Danube. At the same time Eva‘s marvellous little brother decides to murder the dictator on a national holiday. (Rik Vermeulen)
