“One of the greatest movies about journalism ever made” - Indiewire

A 2015 nightclub fire in Bucharest ironically became a tinderbox across Romania unveiling corruption across the nation’s medical industry, exploding into scandal reaching the very highest levels of government. While 27 people perished on the night, it’s the 37 people that passed away in the following weeks, due to inadequate hospital facilities and rampant infections, that caught the eye of journalist Cătălin Tolontan.

Tolontan started questioning the stories put out by the Minister of Health Nicolae Bănicioiu who proclaimed that Romanian hospitals were perfectly prepared for major emergencies. As Tolontan’s investigation continues, holes begin appearing in the government’s official stories, particularly when patients continue dying from easily-preventable infections.

What follows are massive protests that rock Romania, causing citizens to question their leadership, searching for accountability and transparency hidden under a veil of cover-ups and deceit, testing the crucial faith citizens place in their government.
