Synopsis:

Cristi, a young gendarme from Bucharest, keeps his homosexuality secret, since it is a stigma among military ranks. He is in a long-term relationship with Hadi, who lives in another country. The same day Hadi comes to visit him for a few days, Cristi is called in for an intervention at a movie theatre, where an ultra-nationalist, homophobic group has hijacked the screening of an LGBT film. When one of the protesters recognises Cristi and threatens to disclose the truth about his sexuality, the young gendarme must face the danger of losing everything he has.
