Adi, an anthropologist recently left by his girlfriend, moves to Ferentari (the poorest neighborhood in Bucharest), to write about manele music, the pop music of the Roma community. He meets Alberto, a Roma ex-convict, and soon the two men start a love affair. What seems for Adi at the beginning a simple matter of having fun slowly becomes a nightmare.
