When Valentin, a young Romanian street kid, is adopted by a European couple, he’s saved from a life of poverty and drug abuse. But the man he becomes is an outsider in his adopted land; a “Roma” boy with no fixed identity. When he stumbles on a documentary he starred in as a kid, it sets him on a course back to Bucharest on a journey of self-discovery that will define him as a father and a son, and explore whether we can escape who we are.
