“A relationship drama about toxic codependency, Romanian director Calin Peter Netzer’s follow-up to [Golden Bear Winner] Child’s Pose is a sexually explicit two-hander with a lot on its mind.”

— Indiewire

Competition Entry
Irish Premiere

The latest film by Golden Bear winner Calin Peter Netzer.

Toma meets Ana while they are both studying literature at university. Ana has a mild neurotic disorder and suffers from panic attacks. Toma follows her to every dark corner she ends up in, he fights his parents when they reject her, he accepts being a father and marries her, he becomes her babysitter, her driver, her everything. Toma appears to be in control of the couple’s relationship, when in fact he simply gravitates around a woman he cannot understand, pushing his endurance to the limit trying to save her.

When Ana overcomes her fears and adapts to the outside world, Toma remains alone, trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together, striving to understand the whirlwind that he has been through.
