Mihai Vișoiu, a police officer on the verge of retirement, is given the mission to find two prostitutes who are willing to testify in an organized crime case, in an area that he`s known all his life. One of them cannot be found, but Heidi, a Moldavian girl from the mountains, falls into his hands quite quickly. The difficult part starts only when Old Mișu must go beyond all limits to convince her to collaborate.
