Such events present and praise Romanian's creativity, adaptability and resourcefulness, but also customs and traditions.

Although the movie was made in Protected content , there are still a lot of rituals happening in Moldova.

At the end of the year, the spirits of the dead come out of the graves and walk through the village. Moldovans meet during pagan winter festivals to ward off evil spirits.

During the pagan winter festivals, the villagers drive away evil spirits through rituals, customs and ritual dances laden with symbolism.

The masks and costumes they wear are made by themselves, a tradition that is preserved and passed down from father to son. Anyone can join the pagan winter festivals, their beauty consisting precisely in the diversity of costumes and ways of expression whose ultimate goal is to drive away evil and welcome the new year.
