Romanian Palme d’Or winner Cristian Mungiu’s latest follows a doctor’s attempts to help his daughter pass a life-changing school exam.

A tragic and intelligent examination of morality, corruption, loyalty and the choices people make to claw their way to the top.

Living in a small mountain town in Transylvania, Eliza has been raised with the idea that once she turns 18, she will leave to study and live abroad.

His plan is close to succeeding, she has won a scholarship to study psychology in the UK. She just has to pass her final exams, a formality for such a good student.

On the day before her first written exam, Eliza is assaulted in an attack that could jeopardize her entire future. Now father Romeo has to make a decision. There are ways of solving the situation, but none of them using the principles he, as a father, has taught his daughter.

A tragic and intelligent examination of morality, corruption, loyalty and the choices people make to claw their way to the top.
