It’s Christmas, we are in North Romania at the end of 1999. Nelu, a student, lives in Baia Mare, a mining town at the foot of the Carpatian Mountains; Petru, a violin-player, lives a few kilometres away in Valeni, a village beyond the mountains. This is the land of the Maramures, an ancient people which has managed to preserve its identity through the ages, whilst integrating certain outside elements from numerous invaders. Amongst those that have left their trace, the Romans, the Turks and most recently the Ceausescu dictatorship.
