"A slow-burning, delicate vehicle in which angst and alienation is dressed up in a very warm and evocative hue — with the visual poetry punctuated by nods about the harsh economic realities at the fringes of Europe today.” Hollywood Reporter

Ivo is an agronomist, but the lack of opportunities pushes him to accept a job in the fertile region of Banat in Romania. Clara has just ended a relationship and is about to lose her job at the Bari harbor. Ivo and Clara meet by chance and seem to immediately understand each other. They spend only one night together before Ivo’s departure, but that is enough to create a bond and wanting to meet again. When Clara visit him in Romania, they fall in love. But is exile their only way to happiness?
