4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days


Otilia and Gabita share the same room in a student dormitory. They are fellow students at the university in this small town in Romania, during the last years of communism. One day, Otilia books a room in a cheap hotel. In the afternoon, they are going to meet a certain Mr. Bebe. Gabita is pregnant, abortion is illegal and none of them have gone through anything like this before. The film belongs to a larger project called Tales from the Golden Age – a subjective history of communism in Romania through its urban legends. The project’s aim is to talk about that period with no direct reference to communism, but only through different stories focused on personal options in a time of misfortune, when people had to pretend like everything was normal.
