This subtitled foreign film is both poignant and enlightening. A harsh dictator is forced to live among the people he brutally ruled after they start a revolution. He disguises himself as a street musician and dresses his grandson up as a little girl. As he struggles to keep both of them alive in the harsh climate, he sees the consequences of his regime.
