The ‘50s. A Romanian village. Năiță Lucean fights against the communist collectivization by all possible means.
“Fox Hunting, one of Daneliuc’s films that didn’t find its rightful place in Romanian cinematography, needs to be urgently re-discovered and theoretically analyzed. It is a hidden jewel of Romanian cinema” (Ionuț Mareș).
Năiţă Lucean, a stubborn and quick-witted peasant, who have never had a political life, expecting fighting the war, fights against the communist collectivization by all possible means. He instinctively feels that giving away his land and animals can only cause him and his family harm. The idea of collective goodness is forced upon him.
