Dr. Romeo Aldea, a physician, lives in a town in mountainous north-west Romania with his wife Magda and their 18 year old daughter Eliza, who is about to graduate  from high school. Eliza has been offered a scholarship from a British university to study Psychology, but the scholarship has one condition: she must achieve top marks in her final exams.

But when Eliza is the victim of an attempted rape, the lives of the Aldea family start to unravel. Psychologically shaken, Eliza still has to sit the exam, despite her father’s attempt to postpone it. Dr. Aldea suddenly finds himself needing to manipulate the Romanian school system in order to get his daughter through her exams.
