SYNOPSIS

Paul is married to Adriana for 10 years.
They have a daughter, a car, an apartment and they still seem to be in love.
Paul also has an affair with Raluca, a 27-years-old dentist he met 6months ago.
Paul loves both women, but when the two of them meet by chance, he’s forced to make a decision.

DIRECTOR STATEMENT

“I have tried to put into film the voyeuristic sensation that one might get from looking inside people’s houses, fromwalking into a couple’s kitchen or bedroom. Marital intimacy can be more captivating than a good action movie.
This is not a film about guilt. This is a film about choices. A crossroads in life, where you feel you can control your own destiny. This is when you are at your most vulnerable, even though, for the first time ever you may feel you hold the power to turn your life around.
Paul’s decision is neither rational, nor passional.He decides to amputate a part of his life thus far, in an attempt at moral survival.”
