Bucureștiul văzut de sus

A charming old lady has to leave home because her family cannot take care of her anymore. On her way to the elderly care home, a cloud of guilt begins to engulf the sunny Bucharest skies. A car ride filled with remorse, bitterness, and doubt that casts a bleak heavy shadow on a bright day.
