The screenplay, written by Mitulescu and Radu Aldulescu, focuses on Mihai Visoiu (Gheorghe Visu in a new role as a lawman after he revived his career with Bogdan Mirică’s Dogs [+lire aussi :

), a policeman verging on retirement who is given a mission to find a girl willing to testify in an organised-crime case involving human trafficking. Visoiu finds Heidi (Cătălina Mihai) easily enough, but the true adventure starts when the policeman has to convince her that she should collaborate with the police. 

The film’s budget amounts to approximately €940,000. The Romanian National Film Center supported the project with almost €455,000. Production started in February in Bucharest, and the project is now about to wrap post-production. Marius Panduru is the film’s DoP, and other important parts are played by Florin Zamfirescu, Bogdan Dumitrache, Alex Conovaru and Octav Costin

Cătălin Mitulescu tells Cineuropa that his main interest in the story was showing how the male protagonist develops fatherly feelings for Heidi and how, in a moment of vulnerability, he tries to do the right thing, although he has no power to truly help this girl who escaped from a family of gangsters.

Heidi will be released domestically in 2019. For now, there is no Romanian distributor attached.
