In the ‘80s, Romania sold its citizens of German ethnicity against western currencies and a bottle of Pepsi was any child’s dream.
Istvan, 8, is lucky to find such a bottle in the house of the security officer in charge of Istvan and his mother’s departure to the Federal Republic of Germany. While his mother allows the officer to come closer to her in exchange for their passports, Istvan floods the officer’s house as he tries to steal the bottle of Pepsi.
