In 1989 Romania suffered a coup d'état. The secret police knew that it was coming and had time to prepare. In order to quickly develop the skills that the free market rewards, they set up a project for experimental psychological engineering. Using boot-camp techniques together with special frequencies to manipulate brain patterns, they managed to turn ‘socialist man’ into ‘capitalist man’. ‘The Bucuresti Experiment’ looks at the individuals who were behind the project, and follows the life of the first man to complete the training process. The Bucureşti Experiment is the first ever exposé of what really took place in 1989.
