Against the background of the current economic crisis and today's mediatised world, SKaGeN looks back on the life and work of the CCC, operating from facts as well as lies and fantasy.

CCC, THE FAT YEARS ARE OVER, is based on documentary material about the Cellules Communistes Combattantes, a revolutionary group that committed 25 attacks against capitalist targets in Belgium between 1982 and 1985.

After an accumulation of misunderstandings and miscommunication during the inquest, two firefighters lose their lives. 28 others are injured. A handful of attacks later, on December 16, 1985, the revolutionary fighters are arrested, and face a long prison sentence. 4 hunger strikes, 0 confessions, and 17 years of solitary confinement later they are released again.
