Ceausescu ruled Romania with an iron fist from 1965-1989, and the cameras were rolling when he and his wife were eventually ousted and put on trial for horrifying abuses of power. Using only official footage from the Romanian National Television and National Film Archives, this staggering film tells the story of the rise and fall of one of the twentieth century's most brutal regimes.
