Romeo Aldea is a doctor who has always longed for a future somewhere well away from the corruption of provincial Romania for his daughter Eliza. She is a model student, soon to enroll at a prestigious British university after her high school leaving exams and apparently on the brink of making his dream come true. But then an incident occurs which threatens the whole plan, and Romeo is driven to behave in a manner very different from the principles he has taught his daughter. An impeccably constructed drama about fatherhood and the consequences of one’s own decisions. Winner of the Best Director Award at Festival Cannes.
