For a generation Romanian women were forced to have babies they didn't want. Nicolae Ceausescu imposed a ban on abortion and birth control and forced every woman of child bearing age to have at least four children. Control over reproduction was strictly enforced. The infant and maternal death rate was high. Thousands babies were born with AIDS. In cases when children were born with mental or physical disabilities, their parents were explicitly encouraged to leave them in the special orphanages. In certain cases, when parental agreement was not easily obtainable, parents were made to believe that their infant was dead while in reality the new-born was transferred to the special "child-care" institution. Plagued by horrifying living conditions and wide-spread abuse, these orphanages were often situated in remote areas of the country, keeping the "embarrassing" sight of disabled children away from public view. The film crew shot much of the footage in such institutions and the result is a shockingly graphic sequence of skeleton-like emaciated and neglected children. Ceausescu's lasting legacy is a generation of unwanted children.

Romania, 1987, the brutal Ceausescu communist regime is in place; birth control is illegal and abortion is a crime punishable by death. Gabita (Laura Vasliu) is almost five months into an unwanted pregnancy and in meek desperation turns to her friend and roommate, Otilia (Anamaria Marinca) for help in organizing an illegal termination. Unfortunate circumstances force the two women to use a male abortionist, Bebe (Vlad Ivanor), who, in addition to an absurd amount of money, also demands sex with both women as payment. The bleakness of the storyline expresses a dark socio-political critique in the twilight years of a repressive dictatorship.

Una giovane donna senza nome, in una città rumena, un appuntamento obbligato e temuto con i servizi segreti del regime di Nicolae Ceausescu. Durante il tragitto in tram per presentarsi all'interrogatorio, immagini e figure della vita attraversano la mente della protagonista… Tutto si affaccia alla memoria e si intreccia al presente, agli interrogatori e alle vessazioni, all'angoscia quotidiana e agli stratagemmi con cui il pensiero cerca tenacemente di non soccombere. Con questo importante romanzo Herta Müller ci offre un'esplorazione toccante e magistrale su come la dittatura arrivi a impadronirsi di ogni fibra dell'umano..

Per quanto spossata, sfiatata, acciaccata da una grave patologia polmonare, la paziente molto speciale protagonista di questo libro vede il reparto ospedaliero come un palcoscenico su cui medici e malati, infermieri e parenti in visita interpretano - attori inconsapevoli - la pièce della commedia della vita. Il racconto è un inanellarsi di piccole storie all'interno della storia più grande dei vari ricoveri della protagonista. Non vengono fatti nomi, nemmeno quello dell'ospedale stesso, perché ciò che accade è in qualche modo esemplificativo di una condizione più generale… Macho Piccini, lo Sciamano, Martello Pneumatico, Miss Ceausescu, Tromba di Gerico, Nosferatu. Così vengono identificati alcuni dei personaggi che si muovono attraverso le pagine.
