The threat of being outed causes an explosion of violence: a Romanian drama about the dilemma faced by a gay policeman in a homophobic society. Cristi, a policeman from Bucharest, keeps his sexuality secret because he fears discrimination in his macho environment. During a visit from his boyfriend who lives in another city, Cristi is deployed to a cinema: a group of right-wing demonstrators are trying to prevent a queer film being shown. When one of the activists recognizes Cristi and threatens to expose him, the young policeman loses it completely.
