Romania, 1989. Communist regimes are crumbling across Europe. Seventeen-year-old Cristian Florescu dreams of becoming a writer, but Romanians aren't free to dream. Amidst the tyrannical dictatorship of Nicolae Ceausescu, Cristian is blackmailed by the secret police to become an informer. He's left with only two choices: Betray everyone he loves - or use his position to creatively undermine the most notoriously evil dictator in Eastern Europe. Cristian risks everything to unmask the truth behind the regime, give voice to fellow Romanians, and expose to the world what's happening in his country. He eagerly joins the revolution to fight for change when the time arrives. But what is the cost of freedom?
