One morning, after a one night stand, Oana finds herself the victim of a robbery. She calls the police and they find out that the only things missing are her laptop and her dog.

The day after a one night stand can be in many ways: happy, full of indecision and dissatisfaction, full of expectations and hopes, the phone checked many times or, on the contrary, shut down. For Oana, the main character of the short film „Trespass” this day brings a great surprise: once home, Oana finds the door of her apartment open and the dog gone.

She panics and calls the police. Yet, the fear doesn’t go away with the policemen departure or the report signed. What happens next continues the story that started the night before…

The movie is, thus, one of those open-ended Romanian shorts.


„I think someone broke into my apartment.”

 „Like I said, there is no one.”

 „We need to go down to the station and get a registration number. But you should know  we rarely find them.”

 „I figured the earrings were just a cover…
Yeah, I didn’t forget anything.
… to see me.
More or less… yeah.”

 „The leash is up there, could you get it?”
