La Limita De Jos A Cerului

The Unsaved

Nineteen-year-old Viorel lives with his mother in a remote Moldovan town. He has no great ambitions nor any illusions about life. He and his pal Goos earn a little cash through illegal activities, and Viorel is helping him fulfill his dream of flying. His mother tries to convince him to find a decent job. Eventually, Viorel begins taking control of his life. In his authentic, socially conscious debut, director Igor Cobileanski captures the dead-end situation the young generation finds itself in – growing up in a place lacking prospects for a better life.
