A senior living in the Romanian town of Sibiu, Emil spends most of his time taking care of his blind mother, a former school teacher. She had named him after Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s title character of Emile, Or On Education, ascribing the values of a natural upbringing which retains innate human goodness. Emil has two grown-up children, his son, Andrei, having to choose between a sportsman and a businessman’s career.
