The Fall follows Doru Popescu, a young rebel with a noble cause: a world without walls. After the mother of his newborn daughter dies at the Romanian revolution, Doru is launched into a dramatic journey of fatherhood, responsibility and pursuit of freedom. Surviving the bloody regime of dictator Nicolae Ceaușescu, Doru becomes a journalist for the Free Press, openheartedly voicing his poetic ideals. Through hybrid forms of artistic expression, the piece weaves together Doru's story, his struggle to connect with his daughter, and his plight against the "wall-builders" - a pair of fantastical administrators on a mission to slice up the world by building a multitude of new walls.
