The empire collapses in a blink of an eye. The oppression disappears, together with the rules that were giving safety. Everything is unstable, but in turn also possible. The film condenses episodes of a fictitious regime change when, for an exceptional moment, the protagonist is not the history, but the ordinary people and their clumsy acts of self liberation.
