Anton (Marin Grigore), a famous pianist, has gone missing.

After the death of his parents, Anton had become obsessed with the happiness of his sister, Ana (Irina
Rădulescu), beyond the limits of brother love.
“Many years ago, my family went through a drama, an awful drama, that you`d rather see in movies, not in real life. It`s hard to imagine that in real life you will have to face the disappearing of a person who is more than dear to you. That event left a deep scar in my soul and of those around me and that deep pain gave me the idea of making a film.” the director Dorian Boguță said.
“The result is a film with lots of suspense, but it couldn`t be short on emotion. And if after watching it the viewers will go out of the cinema asking themselves a few questions about what happens to all of us, I like to believe that I didn`t live part of my life in vain and that I left something behind me.” The director added.
Mădălina Ghenea, appreciated internationally for her part in Youth, directed by Paolo Sorrentino, plays a key part in the film, that of a woman who has essential info for the police investigation. Teodor Corban, a highly appreciated stage and film actor and the star of the recent
