It’s 31st of December. Everyone at the Sink bar is preparing for the New Year’s Eve Party. In their homes, the guests of the bar, prior to the party, are doing the same, they are getting ready for a new start, or another end or just wishing same old for … next year.

The New Year’s Eve is magical. Or, at least, it should have a bit of magic in it. And that is because the New Year has to be different. To bring everything that last year didn’t have. To clean the friends list a little bit. To take one by surprise ( in the best way possible). To wipe off everything that was bad and meaningless in the year that approaches its end. And so on and so forth.

What happens when the last night of the year is yet another night with the problems, fears, dissatisfactions typical of all 365 nights until now?

Along with „Dying from a wound of love” and „30”, „Sink” is one of the three Romanian shorts online on Cinepub directed by Iulia Rugină.


“Did you make plans with me and forgot to call me, or how?”
