A fiction film based on real life events.

A cinema in Bucharest screened a controversial film about two lesbians who form a couple. Minutes into the film, a few members of the audience stood up, vehemently opposing the gay community. The press accused the Gendarmerie for not intervening to end the conflict. The film focuses on the destiny of the man who led the gendarme team, Nicu Holban, in the action at the museum, through an investigation by Liliana Calomfir, a young journalist known for her unusually daring reporting.
