A young film director, Tamás, is invited to a village to lead a summer art workshop for kids. He quickly discovers that the village is overrun with corruption and that even exploitation might be involved in the lucrative local businesses. Tamás starts an investigation into the abusive mayor and exposes him by shooting a documentary, but his good intentions have unexpected consequences: the locals turn against each other and what began as an easy-going summer adventure results in total disaster.

A random post on Facebook: "A few rolls of film have been found abandoned for decades somewhere in an old attic!" Digitizing the film brings to light family footage: ordinary home scenes, birthdays, holidays, visits, outings. The search for those who appear in the footage is thrilling, and the result is an immersion in time, with family stories and dramas painted in the visual aesthetic of 8mm film.

In 2019, Marina Voica stars in a short film directed by Andrei Răuţu, and since then, Andrei refuses to leave her alone. Initially, Marina agrees to shoot a music video with Andrei, and later, the idea of making a documentary. However, she is not entirely satisfied with the way he films her. The interaction between the camera and the character unfolds as a battle of unmasking, in which the director seems to lose to the Romanian music diva, unsure of how to relate to her: as a grandmother or as a vibrant artist.

A filmmaker starts following the story of a man who is fighting a lone, harrowing battle against a Kafkaesque system that refuses to recognize he is alive. As her camera rolls and days turn into weeks, she becomes dangerously enmeshed in his journey. But the story behind the story is much darker and sadder than she could have imagined.
