Christmas is around the corner and paranoia rather than holiday cheer is in the air. On the 20th of December 1989, a few days after Ceausescu's bloody repression in Timisoara, a father’s quiet evening turns to sheer panic as he finds out that his little son has mailed a special wish letter to Santa. The police is patrolling the streets, even neighbours mistrust each other, and small pots have ears, too.
