The title of the film is the date on which the editorial staff of the Hungary´s largest opposition newspaper, Népszabadság, was fred. The filmmaker tore up copies of that day’s issue, layered them, and then turned them into an urgent collage expressing his yearning for the free expression of opposition viewpoints. The visible edges of the film emphasize the impossibility of presenting information in a complete context.

“Our film is a simple political statement. It was made in two days, right after the shut-down of Népszabadság.” B. Máté, P. Lichter
