Directed by Thomas Ciulei
Romania, Germany, 2008


Costica raises his three children in the village of Acui, Moldova, without his wife, who left for Italy over three years ago to find work and has not been home since. The film depicts a large-scale social phenomenon-massive economic migration that leaves deep scars in the structure of the family.
