In the show the story of "an ordinary couple of dictators", the Ceausescus spouses, is told in the first person by the same characters. Nicolae Ceausescu and Elena Petrescu, capricious and bloodthirsty despots, for over twenty years have sown fear in the Romanian people, only to end up summarily executed in front of the cameras, under the eyes of the world, on December 25th 1989.
