Romeo has raised his daughter with the idea that once she turns 18, she will leave to study and live abroad. His plan is close to succeeding. She just has to pass her final exams. But the day before her first exam, an incident jeopardizes Eliza’s departure. Now Romeo has to make a decision. There are ways of solving the situation, but none of them involve the principles he has taught his daughter.

With the support of the Embassy of Romania in Ireland and the Romanian Cultural Institute

Mungiu flawlessly dissects contemporary Romanian society with this tale about a father who manipulates the system to aid his daughter's career.
