Romania, 1986. Gregor and Vali decide to escape from the grim conditions under Ceauşescu’s dictatorial regime. Their plan is to swim across the Danube River. Yugoslavia lies just across the water – and after that, the Free West.


It’s not the first time that the men have attempted this perilous undertaking – but this time it has to succeed. They need each other’s help in order to escape abroad, but it’s difficult to know who to trust in such fearsome times. On the night of their planned escape, Gregor’s mistrust of his ‘partner in crime’ is proven correct; all he can do is hope that it ends well.
