Synopsis

Costi is planning to spend a few days with his family in a mountain hut. On the spur of the moment, he persuades his father Sandu, who has long lived in separation from Costi's mother, to join them. In their aged car, once lovingly christened Mariţa, father and son set out on the journey from Transylvania to Moldova. Old memories are reawakened and a new closeness develops. When the two men finally arrive, Sandu manages to entertain the family with colourful, funny anecdotes for an evening – but can he heal the deeper wounds? Mariţa is a warm-hearted comedy about the real meaning of family.
