In a secluded village from the Danube Delta, a deacon called Kazimir uses his mysterious powers to heal the villagers of their afflictions. But the forces of good and evil balance each other and the nights are not peaceful for Kazimir, the few inhabitants of Sfantu Gheorghe and some naive visitors. They couldn’t have come at a worse time.
Part of the omnibus with the topic „Danube Delta”, along with other two shorts directed by two actors („A duet” – Andi Vasluianu and „Square One” – Emanuel Pârvu) and quite close to „Square One” as far as the atmosphere and the topic are concerned, „Kazimir” might be the exact opposite approach of the „horror” pattern.
It’s happening in an isolated village in the Danube Delta, at night, when two strangers come to the village looking for Kazimir, the deacon endowed with supernatural powers. But there is a price to be paid for his help, and the payment is not a joke…
“Stop fidgeting, already! Calm down… Be patient. I’ll be with you in a minute.”
“Listen up, Rusky, have you ever heard the word «rip off»?”
“God giveth, God taketh away.”
