An atmospheric and harsh modern Western from no-man's-land in today's Romania. Roman returns from the city to sell his late grandfather's lands. He's not welcome in the countryside; not unexpected since his grandpa was a local crime boss. The past returns in a roundabout way as the guys from grandpa's gang refuse to give up their “business” without fighting back. The dark genre location setting uses the minimalism of Romanian New Wave.
