Ştefan is turning 18. His Dad decides this is the day for his son to ”become a man”, with all that entails. Only things do not go as planned and the father receives a life-changing lesson from his son.
Set in a contemporary atmosphere, in the Romanian urban area and revolving around the topic of father-son relationship, the short film „From Now On” sharpens, through the story it tells, the viewer’s perception of the as much silenced as they are strong inner conflicts of two emblem-characters: the cliché father, full of prejudices and vices and his unhappy and not understood son.
Captive in the car in which the son learns how to drive, among lessons about true manhood, the two walk a complicated path that takes both of them by surprise.
