Movie synopsis: When Tavi looks into his personal file that was compiled by the secret police of Nicolae Ceausescu's communist regime 20 years ago, he finds an unexpected revelation. The girl, to whom he dedicated a popular song called Roxanne by The Police in a broadcast of Radio Free Europe, was pregnant. Is it possible that her son, who's now twenty years old, is Tavi's offspring? And who was the secret police's informer that knew all the details of his life? Tavi decides to find the truth and explores the past that wanted to remain hidden. Once spied on, the main character paradoxically becomes an enthusiastic spy himself in Valentin Hotea's feature debut.
