The story begins in 1968, with the invasion of Czechoslovakia and its denouncing by Nicolae Ceaușescu and it continues in a dystopian universe in which USSR invades and annexes Romania. In order to get rid of the Soviet domination, the Ceaușescu couple seeks the help of some supernatural creatures.
