The film’s central character, going by the nickname ‘the Baron’, confesses an act of deliberate deceit. Brought up in the slums, he took advantage of a political context in 1990s Romania, the so-called ‘mineriada’ (the coal miners’ revolt), and took off to the Netherlands, together with his brother and a friend. After six months of petty crime, he was eventually sent back home by the Dutch authorities.
