Bucharest; 1959. Anti-Semitism is on the rise. During a New Year’s Eve party in a whorehouse, five high-ranking Jewish members of the Romanian Communist Party decide to form a gang and pull off an audacious act of political agitation.

Posing as a movie crew, they manage to pull off the crime of the century – holding up the Romanian National Bank by making it look like they were shooting a film.

But what comes next is even more unbelievable when the group is handed down a punishment more absurd than the crime itself. Based on a bizarre true story, this dark comedy drama is a breath of fresh air.
