It's only a few hours' drive to Bucharest but it seems like a world away to Irina. An intelligent 22-year-old, Irina wants to study in the capital but feels coerced into working at the country hotel run by the violent and abusive men in her extended family. This toxic atmosphere of in-fighting, mind games and simmering resentment has also deeply affected Irina's volatile sister, Vicki. Things begin to change when Irina makes an unexpected and unorthodox connection with Tudor, a married actor. Grigore's fearless and confronting screenplay is matched by Ioana Chitu's outstanding performance as the vulnerable yet coolly determined young woman who wants to finally start living her own life.
