She carries a camera and a vertiginous suspicion: what if her family had collaborated back then with the political police of the communist regime? And what if they belong to the so called 'red trash' that the protestors want to see disappearing? She decides to investigate her own family while filming constantly and being ready for anything. Her adventure turns into a tragic-comic odyssey, a mix of a spy thriller and a family portrait.
