It seems that Otto's ancestors are buried here

They have arrived from Luxembourg

.about 700 years ago

Do you know where Luxembourg is located?

next to Germany

.I will teach you how to purify water

Do you know what this is?


In the spring, I'll show you the edible plants


It's not good, but it's drinkable

If you know how to start a fire
Boil water, and you can live

But in order to survive, you are
.Need to learn more

.and know how to fight

.that's easy

You must not be pitiful

Area invaders, did they have any pity?

.This is life

If you have pity, you will die first
And I want you to die last

.Let's go

Go wash your hands

They gave them beautiful gifts at the factory

,By the way

And "Rudy"?

I told you I take care of everything

What exactly?

What are you hinting at?

to sleep with him?
He has turned 8 years old!

.it is small

You keep him small and that's why he depends on you


You teach him sewing, not German!

This calms him down, which is recommended

Recommended? Do you want to turn him into a sissy?

Does he have to kill animals to be a man?

It must be strong so as not to be trampled on

.right on time -
He's the laughingstock of his class.

I used to work there like a dog.
Not for me.

Watch what you say!

And if I don't?

Raise your hand on me again, and I'll leave

And I'll take the little one.

.very good -

Can we bring the...? -
.Yes. Yes. Go ahead -

Do they know how to start a fire?

.I believe. Otherwise, they must learn

It would embarrass me. It's Christmas.

!Come here. Come here

And what about them? Do they eat pork?

Do you eat pork?

.No. But don't worry


.Because you are there, the world to you is the West

.much more than first friendships


.You're exaggerating -
.never -

.We know your history well.

. Anna can tell you.

.Then you don't know anything about the East.

.You're generalizing a bit, but yeah
History will always be for the strongest.

. This is the reality -
.Yes. Yes. Of course -

.You have become mighty, and have erected great cathedrals.

..because we are.. here

.we were struggling with the spreaders of darkness

..the Mongols

..the Avars

And the Huns, who are the worst

. That's right

..look at the map
.Romania has always been among empires.

..You have the Germans, the Russians, the Hungarians

And you finally left us to the Russians.
Enough politics!

Ura, bring the cabbage to the guests.

I will disturb you.
No, sit down.


.No. I do not want anything. Thanks

How about a little candy?

Well, I can't say no

.me too

Mara, is Santa Claus gone? -
.yes -

You were sober

They destroyed our economy

I even suggested it to Mathias.
What? -

To work as a baker

He will go back to Germany, he has a life there

This is what will happen

The little boy didn't speak German anymore since I left

It's okay, they're learning
.quickly when they start

He will learn what he needs


Excuse me, I'm going to see Father Otto, he's bedridden

..the problem is that virus diseases are different

..in the far country

.from a medical point of view

if only there were one or two
.only, that would have been good.

but they're going to be three. Will it ever stop?

.Look how they leave for overseas

.They earn a little and then find themselves in need.

And then, they blow themselves up
.or they kidnap you in a car.

, we recently got rid of the gypsies
Are we going to repeat the mistake again?

. He's right

. I'll go talk to the factory about it -
.ok, father

Ask why they didn't hire local workers

You know that some people
From here they work abroad.

would you find that normal
Are they being taken advantage of by others?

.While our villages are full of such people

!I have seen the gypsies very well
They are settling into an empty house.

Who knows what they want?

.they want to go west, we're just a pit stop

.don't raise your voice in church


must be reported to the factory. And must
.that happens immediately

.We are just a group of villagers
We respect each other

.ok, I'll go after mass

.we don't want them here

, we have nothing against them
.but let them stay in their house

.we don't want them in our church

.take action before it's too late

. Let's pray together to refocus.


1500 euros per month, and accommodation is paid

Check it out, however
To be a resident because he is half German

Does he speak German? -
Yes, with an accent.

.This is a great advantage
I'll take a look at the butcher's job offers


For the new two, do you have the papers?

.Here it is

Think and call me quickly
The matter cannot be delayed

.good day -
.and you the same -

The priest asks to speak to Mrs. Denise

.she is busy

.it's about strangers

. People were angry in the church

.Look, it didn't happen without documents, everything is legal.

.I understand, but the villagers don't want them.

Should I throw them in
the street after I brought them here?

.you should have made sure you were approved by our community beforehand

But anyway, we did
.by placing ads for several weeks

.We have our priorities, we are asking for European funding

. It's complicated -
.Sure -

.I don't want it to end up exploding

How's that?

, I'm telling you what people say
Take him into consideration.

Did these people tell you that they
They created a Facebook group against them?

that they're sending them death threats?

.I don't control Facebook.
.We have to take it seriously -

Who are bothering them?

.They work hard. They are two good people

...it's possible, but

.the people don't want the bread they make.

why? -
.because they don't want him -

.Sorry, this is out of bounds

They don't have the plague, everything
.legal. I'm sorry if that bothers you

I doubt things are going in
The right direction, but I'll get over it.

. God bless you both.
And God bless you -

.Come on, go

.stop. Take it out

. Throw it away

.well done

! the priest is back

. again

So, Father? Is it again?

.Unfortunately, you won't give up on these strangers.

! Speak Louder!

.what a bitch

. I explained to them

.for them, they are good and hardworking people

.work from home, then.

.Let's start a petition to kick them out of the village

Do you have paper?

Do you think this is a good idea?

.Why not? We will say what we think

! Get back to work!


. Say hello to my boss, Chilla.

. Hello-
.Hello -


.You don't have to worry, everything is fine

.You say you are like a mother to us


.Yes. I am the mother, and they are two very good boys

.They work hard

.They cook really well. They cook wonderfully

Do you want to see?

. Look.

. Rice with vegetables

. Samosa

!Bon appetit

.Hello -

so you don't have to worry, okay?
.everything is fine

.I'll take Mahinda back to you, so he can say goodbye


. Look, this is my brother -
.ok -

is this? -
It's Pepsi -



what's his name?

what's his name? -
"Pepsi" -


. I also have a dog, and his name is "Caesar."


and where is your brother? -
.he is in China. Works there -

and your family too? -
No, my family is in Sri Lanka

. My brother is in Spain -
.good -

where in "Spain"? -
“Barcelona” -

and your parents? -
.My parents are dead -

! I'm sorry!
.do not worry. It's okay -

!He's an amazing musician!


.Yes. He makes music

.He can play cups

.Come on. Do it

. Show us

Can you help me?

. Hold the cups.

very cute! can i? -
.Yes -

.This is amazing

Can you play this? -
.Yes, I will try -

. Let's see

Go back to your country, or we will kill you!


! What a shame
Show yourself if you are really men.

Did you sleep with the whole village?
And you started sucking black cocks now?

! I'll call the police. I know you

We know where you live, you idiot

.Yanxi, is that you? I'll call your father."

If they don't come out, we will burn you all!

!Good luck! And get out of my face

what is happening?

We can't keep them here, I'm sorry

They are good people

.maybe, but my wife is weak of heart

...you said two, now it's three

We'll pay you more.
.that's not the point -

Take the lead and push them away.
Where shall I take them at this hour? -

We can't keep them here

.at least until tomorrow, please

And if these thugs come back, what are we going to do?

I will risk my wife's heart attack for 500 lei?

The ambulance takes
.hours to get here, you know

What's wrong?

Can I help?

Have you seen "Raouf"? -
.no -

.Go back and watch from the inside

Where is "Raouf"? -
.I don't know -

.Rauf was very afraid.

Is he really a baker?


. He's not at home.

.OK, let's go

. We'll go then -
.thank you -

Shall I go with you?

.No, it's okay

. Take -
.Thank you -


. Thank you

.It's the new year, honey.

what is happening?

.They attacked the aliens
They will sleep here tonight

attacked? -
.yes -

of whom?

I don't know, they were masked

Were they drunk men? -
.probably -

Do you know who they are? -
.I have no idea -

This is no longer my business

Oh really?
Even though we almost got burned alive?

And you? What were you doing there?

Is this the problem? -
This is part of it -

If only they were
They will burn, would you be satisfied?

...of course not, but

.They don't belong here


You are the ones who need them, but they are
They will never be at home here

.Let's go. Go home

And you? Where will you sleep? -
I? what do you mean? -

Where will you sleep?

Here, of course!

Well, that's kind of crossing the line
If you ask me for my opinion

.I don't ask you

We have sex, and that's it
.I am not your wife

We're having sex, is that all? -
You understand what I'm saying.

You don't say "I love you" to me, but you give me your opinion?

...Yes, because I am

I don't want you to sleep with strangers

What is the problem?
Do you think we'll all have sex together?

..Listen, if someone is going to touch you

What? What are you going to do?

I'm not your type!

Go home, organize your life
As long as you are this strong

.Get out

.Check and sign

.I did.

Do you suspect someone? -
.no -

did they speak Romanian? -
.Yes, but with an accent -

.I see

what did you understand from that?

.they had a Romanian accent.

Will this help the investigation?

.This is a fact

.everyone knows Romanian here, even the Hungarians

.but they don't speak it

. When necessary, they speak Romanian

Do you have any news regarding
Threats on the Internet?

, We have transferred the matter to the province
And they have the required technology.

Is the mayor present?

.is not available today

. He's in town
ten thirty
01:20:26,200 --> 01:20:29,199
, call me if needed
.or you discovered something new.

. Absolutely-
.thank you -

. Have a good day -
.and you too -

any news on the third? -
.no -

did you tell the police? -
.no -

.I spoke to the mayor.

He has called for a general meeting in the church tomorrow.

Shall we bring the press too? -
.will not accept -

.He wants it to stay between us
The communication sites are already on fire.

And what about the grant application?

. We'll keep it

Can I accept the other two? -
.Yes -

In Dietrau, they asked us
.stop bringing more

And in Toplita? -
We only sold two boxes.

And here, in the village, they restored everything
.and old bread

We will use this to make toast

We don't have packaging.
We'll ask for some.

Bring it all inside

. Hello, ma'am -
.Good morning -

is the priest here? -
He's eating his breakfast -

Can you ask him to come over when he's done?

God bless you!

what did we say? -
...I told them that you

did you know that the mayor
Has he called for a meeting tomorrow?


Okay. Actually I wanted you to
You meet them before this meeting.

What is the purpose of me meeting them?

.I personally have nothing against them

.I am only a messenger conveying to you the will of the people

, since you have nothing against them
Do you agree with those who expel them from the Church?

.Muslims were not allowed to enter before.

.They are not Muslims. This is Catholic

, madam

, if people don't want them
I can't help them.

.Everyone has their place in this world

.This is God's will

Is this Christianity, Father?

, don't come and talk to me about Christianity
You never step into the church.

and our fellow citizens, what did they benefit from
So who's going to?

. Please leave

It's getting late, and I have to get ready


. Have a nice day

. Have a nice day

Do you suspect anyone?

...if I was in doubt


Where were you last night?

.at my house -
completely alone? -

Speak, we already know

So what do you want from me?

.this is what I want

Demeter Zolt

He said he was with you last night

Is that true or not?

...since he said that

Do you want us to bother Father Otto with this question?

.I do not think so


.do not play with fire

I called the governorate, and they asked me if I was in the village

Your German employer asked them about you

What should I tell them?

.Good evening

!Good evening

Is Mathias here?

No, not here

.Understood. Thanks -
Is there a message for him? -

No, it's okay. I will call him

Are you fine?

.There is nothing wrong

.good night

What the hell are you two doing here? -
Why are you following him? -

!he is afraid -
Let him go alone.

I will leave him when he is no longer afraid

...to stop! you are crazy

.he saw a man

.in the forest

.hanged on a tree

Why didn't you tell me?

.I learned that yesterday. He drew it for me

Come on Rudy, we'll be late

.show me where

Was he here?


Do you know?

.There is nothing that can scare you

.maybe it wasn't true

.there is nothing. Tell him too
It's just fear

He saw it!
What did he see? -

Do you think people evaporate?

Monsters may have eaten it

I'm sorry, Rudy

I didn't mean to scare you. Forgive me

, before giving the floor to the mayor

, let's pray together

.May God help us to do what is right

in what language?

.each in his own language. Father

, our Father who art in heaven

, hallelujah be your name

..your kingdom come

! Stevie, I'm here!"


.Excuse me


There are still people outside

.I leave the floor to Mr. Mayor

...dear compatriots, let me

Louder! There's a crowd

. speak louder

Do you have a speaker?

.Not connected

. There are loudspeakers in the village hall.

is she busy now? -
.no -

shall we go there? -
.Yes -

.It's warmer there

Let everyone go to the feast hall

! Calm down, please

Let me pass

!to the feast hall

. Please sit down

Will you alow me?

Can everyone hear me?


in Romanian!

Is everything okay?

Are you asking me if everything is ok?


.you see for yourself

I wanted to apologise


For making you angry.
.Oh really -

And for what I said

.There is nothing wrong

.GIVE me your hand -
This is not the right time.

are you ashamed of me

Everyone has their own language

I want your hand.
This is not the right moment.

Your hand and I will remain silent

Avoid spreading rumors...
.which will make us laugh later.

Do we all agree? -
.Yes -

Are there any reporters in the room?

.good. Very good

.I see some intruders

. No problem. We have nothing to hide

.Our societies have always been doing well

. We have had no conflict since the 1990s

.Except for that crime eight years ago -
It was an unfortunate accident -

but the culprit didn't come from
The historical background of our societies.

Since there are no more
People of that race in the village

.We coexisted peacefully, Hungarians and Romanians

And the Germans!
Yes, what's left of them -

Didn't we get rid of the gypsies and fight the strangers?

Are gypsies the problem?

Let's watch the words we use
The West will listen to us

!Let's from the West

My son-in-law is in Germany

They call him a gypsy all the time

He is more German than immigrants
Who pick up the people's trash

There is where they claim tolerance

Soon the West will not allow us
Even by saying my mom or dad

Well, I'll put it another way

Such claims harm local tourism

We have obligations to the European Union.
By buying their low quality products? -

.Let us start. Here's what I suggest

I will say a few words and give you the floor

Does anyone want to talk?

! Yes -
.Yes -

Let's stay civil, without interrupting each other

As the chosen one, I guarantee you

That those who want to express
About themselves they can

Is there a speaker in the room?

.Okay, let's get started

...we're here because you signed a petition

.that the local factory hired foreign workers.


.They are not immigrants, as we hear everywhere.

You, dear compatriots, submitted a petition

.demanding their expulsion

Who signed it? By names

Do you have the list? -
.yes -

Nimeth Zolt, Kelemen Tibor.
"Chibario Eureka", "Honor Matthias"

... Teodoresco Avram, Lanco Aron

I'm not the one who put my name on the list

I don't pay any attention to this.
.completely -

There are 395 signatures

Do you want me to read all the names? -
.No. No -

411 They are exactly that

Make a copy, please, and attach it

.on the bulletin board

There is also a list of people who
They don't mind staying, and she's here with me, too

who are they?

I, Zabu Chilla

Denise Victoria, Traian Amzulescu
, "Steffi Oner", "Nagy Rica"

Nemeth Kinga, your sister.

Are you making fun of us? They are factory workers


You got them to sign.
We didn't force anyone.

They sign because they know these strangers personally

.It is their own initiative

Some even came from the Prado

.I work here, and I have the right to express my opinion

How many names are on your list?

There are 28 of them, but we only started this morning

!Come on!

!If you allow

You no longer want democracy
If things are not going in your favor

There are 28 vs. 385
.This is not even debatable


Let's continue

.Mrs. Miklos -
Will you allow me? -

. Hold the speakerphone close.

We have nothing against those
People, if they stayed in their homes

, not in our factory
And their hands are in the bread we eat.

, no doubt I'm old-fashioned
.but this disgusts me.

.Me too

Let's not buy from them again
.others until they are expelled.

...indeed, Mr. Mayor

Let him speak
It's good to get an outside point of view

Who is this guy again?

It came from a non-organization
...French government to maintain

. Please. Please

I have come to help you protect
Your beautiful biodiversity.

He helps us by counting the bears

Should someone do the translation?

Do we pay him for it? -
.maybe. I don't know -

. please.

How much do we pay him to count bears?

I don't know, we're not the ones paying him

It is a matter of principle

...we are unemployed and the mine is closed

!by environmentalists

Monsters are ravaging our lawns, and we
We pay, sir, to count bears?

Why does he not prepare it while he is in his country?

Because they don't have any more bears

They killed it so they could build highways

And the wolves as well

Well, they've evolved very well

Should we still be the zoo of Europe?

Like they did in Africa

Except that we are not savages

Please, let him speak

Calm down!

. Thank you

..just wanted to say

.that people today are free to move around

This justifies the number of blacks and Arabs
.in Paris more than the French

We no longer dare to take the metro

.But these people are French

If you want settlers, accept them yourselves

we do not have. Then what are they doing here?

Sir, there are people too
From here they beg in Paris

Hungarians never beg!

Neither do the Romanians
They are gypsies!

.don't mix things up

. Roma. Yes, but they are also citizens

...Listen, Mr. Fraternity and Equality

If you love them so much
Why do you send them back to us?

.because they are forced to integrate into their country

It is impossible to merge gypsies
Stop hiding behind your finger!

Calm down, please

If you were so talented, you would
You have already managed to integrate blacks and Arabs

.but we've merged them -
Oh really? -

They'll cut your throat before that.
And that would be fine.

You haven't learned anything from Charlie Hebdo
You no longer have anything sacred

Let's close parenthesis on
So, back to our topic

..by our respect

Who is disrespectful to?

Can we now tell the truth?

Go back to communism!

You will be punished if you speak your mind

Please, let's get back to the topic

We are right about that

We have seen what happened in other countries

...it starts with one, two
Then they bring the whole family

This is their way

After that they want mosques

In Germany, it is not possible
.one even enter their neighborhoods

They attack women in the street if they are not veiled

.I don't think we are threatened by that in this village

But if we let them come
Will they claim their rights?

.using bombs and all forms of mayhem

Let them go away!

Rest assured, no attacks will happen here

Even if they blow us all up
We will not appear on the pages of newspapers

What are you saying?

Let's get back to you, Doctor, but
.Enter the subject directly.

.I have one remark to make

.."I don't know these people from Bangladesh

.They're from Sri Lanka

.from Sri Lanka. And they may be very clean

And I'll say it in Romanian so everyone can understand

...scientifically, diseases are different

.GIVE me your hand

their diseases and viruses
And their immune response as well

This is how we got AIDS, bird flu

.God knows what's next

through human societies
directly related to animals

...monkeys, bears and bats

They spread epidemics because they are
They can go anywhere!


They were given a comprehensive health check before being employed

...If you allow

.It is a matter of cleanliness

Excuse me, but Muslims
.they don't use toilet paper

...they work in the bakery

They are not Muslims!
.albeit -

!If you allow

Mister Paccio

.I have one last thing

The end of the world is not a nuclear bomb

It's with all these people who invade us

While the European Union pays us
Money to grow orchards in the countryside

He wants pickles according to the specifications

!It's easy to make your own pickles according to your specifications!

.This is a fact
Why is a garden made in the mountains?

I can answer you in this regard

This allows us to access
Subsidies available from the European Union

For this, gardens were established in rural areas

What about the water channels? And paved roads?

There were no grants for this

But with park aid money
We lit the public streets

I raise my hand from the beginning

Stay on topic.
I'll stay on topic.

My name is Prebo Vasily

For those who don't know me
I worked in the factory

The real problem is

Why are foreigners employed in our places?

People here don't want to work

How is that? Are you paying them enough?

They would rather live on unemployment benefits

This is a big fallacy. I disagree

Aside from having only one pair of pants
.or two, as is the case everywhere

Our men work hard in every country they go to

You know that very well, understand
.don't browse in those countries

When the Westerner appoints you, he exploits you

.but he pays you more

.well said. thank you sir

The question is: why pay
Factory wages that bad?

Why don't you pay extra?

We pay the workers! double pay

incorrect! 43 hours out
Overtime and not paid

.I even filed a case against you

You can check, we have been paying them since 2018

You wouldn't think I would believe that

I'm a former employee

I am in a position to say
..I tell everyone that I'm working overtime

I didn't get any wages

Mr. Pribo...
...Mr. Mayor -

..I speak on behalf of all workers

.who dare not say anything

For fear of being expelled

The ads have been there for weeks

We want to hire people

.at the minimum wage

What if bread costs 5 lei?

And why not be 10?

At the bakery, we work hard, even during the holidays

You need fresh bread every day

.This is a fact

You really have to work hard? -
.Yes -

So why doesn't that apply to you, too?

How much does that Mercedes cost?

While paying your workers a pittance!

My car is rented

All this on the backs of your workers, madam

The priest also has a Mercedes

.it's for my mom

.a used car

.we are still going off topic

Thank you, Mr. Pribo, we have heard your complaint

...excuse me, I think we have the right to reply

In Romanian, please!
.Good -


In the last years,
We created most of the local jobs

We also support the local orchestra

We want to continue developing the region

For this, we are applying for European funds

As if the money would come back to us.
Yes, this money will be spent here.

You mean money that does not spill out of your pocket

We're still getting off topic

.I suggest we take a vote

who votes to hire foreigners
Who were brought to the village?

. That would be obvious.


I didn't quite understand

.who vote to remain aliens

The problem is not well presented

Of course it was well put up!

We are afraid of public opinion
But we clearly don't want them here

Here is what I suggest to avoid complicating the situation

...we'll outfit the aliens with a pair of gloves

Otherwise, we will change their place
And they won't touch the dough anymore

We don't want them, is that hard to understand?

What if we live in another village?

No, let them go!

Who agrees not to buy
Bake them at the moment?

There are still laws in this country

And that's why we want to decide for ourselves
Therefore, we will not take orders

How are you Hungarians?
..who constitute a minority among us

Do you discriminate against other strangers?

"Honor Matthias"

Mathias, where are you?

Mathias, come home.

What happened? -
Father Otto has hanged himself!

May God have mercy on him

.Help me

.I love you, Dad

.I love you

Let's apply again
In the “less than 30 employees” category

. We don't have time for that anymore.

. We're going to stop production and we're all going to work on it tonight.

. The other two are due to arrive tonight

. Let's revoke their acceptance -
...we can't -

So what are we going to do in light of this situation?

.They are human beings -
.I am well aware that they are human beings -

.But we're human too

, without customers

, what took ten years to build will disappear

.And we'll all end up on the street

.Nobody will end up on the street

.You'll find a job, and you'll leave me alone in debt

.Please go ahead and come forward again

.No, I won't do that again

have a family, contracts, we can't
Washing our hands is one of our obligations.

.Nobody washes their hands of anything

.I spoke to the mayor
They will sleep tonight at the station.

. Tomorrow we'll set them up in the Prado. Tell them

.I was offered a job in Germany

I didn't want to accept it, but by looking
.what's going on, I'm resigning

.You were the last one who didn't stick a knife in my back

.You have until tomorrow to reapply

.Inform the workers of my decision

. Take my car

. the car is open -
.ok -

Is that all? -
.Yes -


. And don't worry. You will be safe there

.I'll see you later

.Warm condolences

.Warm condolences


.Thank you -
.Thank you -

.Good evening -
.Good evening -

.Warm condolences -
.Thank you -

.I'm so sorry, Mathias

Who is there?

Open up for me!


Open up for me!

where am I"? -
she's sleeping. what do you want? -

Let the dogs calm down.
Why? What is there at this hour? -

.I want to talk to her -
You will speak tomorrow. come home -


Come and meet your father.
You scare him!

Rudy, your father loves you!

You will talk quietly tomorrow

Go home

Calm down, we'll talk tomorrow.
Rudy, open up for me.

Go home!

Open up for me!
!I'll call the police -

Open up for me!


Rauf, wait.

.I'm sorry

.I am really sorry

.Pardon me

Forgive me, I beg you
