Synopsis

Adi (40), a young anthropologist recently left by his girlfriend, moves to Ferentari (the poorest neighborhood in Bucharest), with the desire of writing a study on manele music (the pop music of Roma community). While researching his subject, he meets Alberto, a Roma ex-convict who promises Adi to help him. Soon, the two begin a romance in which Adi feeds Alberto with improbable plans of escaping poverty and Alberto reciprocates with well-concocted phrases of love. When the money runs out, both find themselves trapped in an apartment where they love and use each other, in a game of need and power that has no winners.
