A doctor in Romania is driven to make compromise after moral compromise in order to ensure his daughter gains a scholarship to an English university.

The director set out to explore the insidious nature of corruption in his country and delivers an insightful social commentary in story form. This well acted and naturalistic drama will draw in audiences with its clever script and the layers of deceit and potential for corruption that it exposes. It's bleak and cynical, and only just serious enough to be wryly amusing. Loose ends ensure riveting viewing as we learn that everything can be fixed. By degrees.
