From 1965 to 1989, the country of Romania was under the ruthless     

dictatorship of Nicolae Ceausescu and his Communist regime. While    

the Romanian people struggled under their political restraints, a  

few upstarts started passing around dubbed VHS copies of Western     

films. Through the gatherings that resulted from these clandestine  

cinema clubs, the Romanian people learned about the world outside of 

their country's oppressive borders. The films that were so widely   

released and distributed in the United States and Western Europe     

became small relics of freedom and hope to the Romanian people who   

brought them illegally into their homes. Through interviews with   

those who were on the front lines of this quiet rebellion - along   

with a loving tribute to Irina Nistor, the woman who translated and 

dubbed literally thousands of these movies despite the political   

danger - Chuck Norris vs. Communism reaffirms the power that stories

have in people's lives.
