CEA MAI FERICITĂ FATĂ DIN LUME / The Happiest Girl in the World
Delia, 18 years old, has won an expensive car. She comes to Bucharest with her parents for the testimonial shooting – the proof that she really received the prize. During the shooting Delia has long talks with her parents – that gradually turn into ugly arguments: Delia wants to keep it, while her parents want to sell it. What seemed to be a lucky event at the beginning eventually becomes an extreme and emotionally painful situation for Delia, in which she has to rethink and question her family relations.
