August 1983, somewhere in Romania. Architect Dinu is spending a perfect summer’s day with his family on the beach, but the idyll is shattered by the arrival of the police. For reasons unknown, Dinu is arrested and immediately hauled off to prison. There he finds himself sharing a cell with Vali, a small-time crook who soon proves much more sinister than a mere fellow inmate.
