Synopsis
In 19th century Romania, policeman Costandin, and his son Lonita travel through the south of the country in search of a fugitive Gypsy slave. Costandin is a charismatic mixture between a funny Stalin and a pragmatic Don Quixote, while Lonita is quite the opposite – more like Dostoyevsky's Idiot. Their journey is pictured with infectious humor and stirring cynicism in an ingenious Western in a wild-wild East never yet captured on film.
