As Fascist Italy occupies Albania in April 1939, thousands of Italian workers, settlers and technicians are transferred to the country. When Albania is liberated in November 1944, the new Communist government closes the borders and places dozens of conditions on Italy for the repatriation of its citizens. A year later, 27,000 Italian veterans and civilians are still held in Albania. Among them is a cameraman, Alfredo C. As part of the Fascist propaganda effort, he had been traveling around Albania shooting film for five years. For almost two decades before that, he had immortalized the great machine of the Italian regime. Now, being the only cameraman around, Alfredo has been asked to work on behalf of Communist propaganda. Shut in his storeroom, surrounded by thousands of reels of film, Alfredo watches what he has shot again on an old Moviola. It is his film that we are watching. And perhaps, not his alone.
