    • Synopsis
    • In August 1983, architect Dinu Neagu together with his wife and two children, a boy and a girl, are on a beach of nudists near an industrial area.
      Two security guards descend from a car and take him to Bucharest for a statement about which they do not give much details about.
      The film continues in the militia's arrest, where architect Neagu is locked in the same room as Vali, a common law convict, used as a torturer by security in exchange for favours.
      Things are getting more and more absurd from one day to the next.
