In 19th century Romania, policeman Costandin and his son Ionita travel through the south of the country in search of a fugitive Gypsy slave. Costandin is a charismatic mixture between a funny Stalin and a somewhat more pragmatic Don Quixote, while Ionita seems to be quite the opposite: more like Dostoyevsky’s Idiot. Their road speedily winds through exotic landscapes and meeting hundreds of secondary characters, rendering a surprise in every scene.
