Romania / 2020 / 85'
The filmmaker and his girlfriend face the news of becoming parents. While the future mother is struggling with no worthy models in her own broken home, the soon-to-be-father must come to terms with his own, long-lost father, now a monk on Mount Athos. The visits to Athos become a way to discover the unsolved mystery of his father’s departure – a key, he feels, to learning how to become the father he never had. As the nine months go by, the quest for answers and reconciliation, full of anxiety and anger, seem to be making way for something much more meaningful: the arrival of a beautiful baby girl.
