More than 30 years have passed since the collapse of Nikolai Ceausescu's rule in Romania, after years of a dictatorship that suppressed fundamental freedoms. The film before us examines the current attitude towards the same government and reveals that not everyone is happy with the new situation, in fact, there is a significant number of Romanians who miss Communism and having basic living conditions fulfilled. With an abundance of archival footage and interviews with experts and citizens trying to determine when it was better - then or now - Nostalgia of the Dictatorship examines the past and present.
