In an isolated Orthodox convent in Romania, Alina has just been reunited with Voichita after spending several years in Germany. The two young women have supported and loved each other since meeting as children when the girls had shared a room at an orphanage. Alina has developed an intense attraction for her friend and wants Voichita to leave and return with her to Germany, but Voichita has found refuge in faith, and a family in the nuns and their priest. The story takes place as Romania converts to the euro and plans entry to the European Community. Cristian Mungiu’s prize-winning film is a powerful and sombre meditation on faith and friendship.
