An independent short film that creates a special energy. The director, Tudor Botezatu, builds up the special universe of Soare (Alexandru Potocean), a musician that is decided to change his life. The solution is perfect: a couple of simple “rules for organization, coordination, and well, basic survival”. Or it seemed perfect in the very beginning.

One of those short films online that went away from the realism specific to the recent Romanian cinema. An auto-ironic comedy where the reality is seen through Soare’s eyes, a character addicted to weed.    


“Sure, it was fun for a while. But frying several billions neurons sort of messed his flow, and nothing turned out right anymore.”

“Therefore, seeing that he was about to pass the point of no return, he decided to take a sharp turn. Rather than rolling his morning joint, he began to keep a notebook with rules for organization, coordination, and, well, basic survival. Thus Sunny began to write, inspired by everyday events.”
