Considered by most to be the godfather of New Wave Romanian Cinema, director Cristi Puiu directs the follow up film to his critically acclaimed 2005 drama, The Death of Mr. Lăzărescu.  Lary, a middle-aged doctor, is forced to confront his fears and past, to rethink the place he holds within the family, and constraint to tell his version of the truth.
