To get the required daily medication for his mother, Victor and his father resort to the toughest and dangerous solution.
Part of the segment of shorts on a social theme, the movie directed by Igor Cobileanski x-rays a society that is sunk in poverty. The solutions for survival are absurd and dehumanizing. The story of a poor family, who reached a life and death situation, is presented in a realist, cold and tough manner.
The movie was screened and awarded in international festivals and is part of the selection of Romanian shorts online of Cinepub.
