    "The film is about the transition, about what happened to us in Bulgaria and other countries where we went (Germany, Romania, Estonia, Macedonia). We met with different people - intellectuals, politicians, ordinary citizens and talked about the various manipulations during the transition, about the use of files to blackmail people from parties and governments for various purposes, about the manipulations of the press, which serves in its large part of the heirs of the former nomenklatura and State Security. We talked about the judiciary, about imaginary processes through which politicians distract people from the more important issues of the people and the state. We talked about the lie, about the substitution, about the fact that the West has made a deal with Russia and agreed that Russia should not start a third world war, and the West should not pursue the crimes of communism. It has become clear from our conversations that the crimes of communism have found refuge in the democratic laws of Western Europe. "
