::SYNOPSIS::
Ovidiu, a young man from Constanta who runs his own business selling snacks and soft drinks out of his parents’ apartment, wants to expand and buy a kiosk, but he doesn’t have the źdough╗. A local mafioso offers him an impressive amount of money for an apparently simple job: he has to take a bag to Bucharest to a specific address. It seems, however, that the bag contains some źstuff╗ that concerns other people too. Convinced at first that he has sold only his services, Ovidiu will understand, eventually and when it is far too late, that he has in fact sold his soul...

::Cristi Puiu::
He was born in Bucharest, in 1967. He studied painting for a year at the Ecole Supérieure d’Art Visuel in Geneva, and then transferred to the Film Department. Avant le petit déjeuner (Before Breakfast), a short film made while still at school, was selected in 1995 for the Locarno Film Festival. Back in Romania, he continues to paint and make films.
