Elena is a tailor, not rich but does not complain. She never moved from her country. Her sister has found a new life in Italy and doesn’t want to return. Elena cries, taking medicines for depression. She asks me to take some pictures to show to her sister in Italy. But I don’t know her sister. And these pictures not only tell about Elena but they seem to speak for an entire country. She yells against a gypsy, she show me her family pictures, she tells me that children are still abandoned. The Ceausescu is gone. But the country struggles to grow up. And then she says: “My name is Elena”, as the dictator’s wife.
