Years ago, Ewald, who is in his mid-forties, moved to Romania. Now he dares to make a new start. He leaves his girlfriend and moves to the impoverished, rural wasteland, where he and local boys turn a ruined school building into a fortress. The children discover a light-heartedness there that they had never known before, but the suspicion of the villagers is not long in coming. And Ewald has to face a long-suppressed truth. SPARTA is the brother play to RIMINI and the completion of Ulrich Seidl's diptych about the inescapability of one's own past and the pain of finding oneself.
