In a provincial city in Romania, Dr. Romeo Aldea has become a success, even if he sometimes wishes he’d made it on a bigger stage. It is perhaps for this reason he is determined to see his daughter Eliza pass her final exam with a high enough mark to secure the UK scholarship that awaits the student with the top score. A series of increasingly sinister events culminates in an attack on Eliza that makes it impossible for her to sit the exam. The doctor, harbouring secrets from the past, must pull every corrupt string and curry favour in every way possible to ensure his daughter’s future.
