Plot
Set in the late 1970s, when the Enver Hoxha regime held Albania in an iron grip, the film tells the story of Andre, who arrives in a remote mountain village for his new teaching post at the local elementary school. His first task is to select a political slogan for his class. The choice lies between Glory to the Revolutionary Spirit and American Imperialism Is Only a Paper Tiger and choosing the shortest one proves to be to his advantage, as Andre soon learns that his class will have to outline the slogan in stone on the mountainside and any mistakes are severely punished. While everyone in the village sees the ridiculousness of the situation, no one would dream of questioning the strict discipline of the party. When a local shepherd is accused of having sabotaged the slogans that he could not read anyway, Andre springs to his defense, an act treated as counter-revolutionary.
