Present day Romania. Estera, a middle class Jewish girl in Bucharest, has to make a choice between pursuing a job in Atlanta, working for a nouveau riche thug, or joining her mother in Israel. She’s expecting a baby and trying hard to work out some sort of future with her boyfriend, Vlad. Her father’s in prison for unspecified crimes and her mother’s soon to be evicted. Her one hope is a “friend-interview” with Mike, a Romanian-American, who reveals himself to be an uncouth bully.
