Documentary, 84 min.
Production status: Released

After being betrayed by the one he forged into a boxing World Champion, veteran boxing coach Dobre devotes himself to training his new pupil, Caisă. He must live with the fear of being abandoned again…


A young man has disappeared; his sister and his girlfriend are mystified. The film accompanies two policemen as they investigate: collegial jokes, the everyday monotony of the work and, now and again, new leads. The missing person was fatally ill and yet he obviously wanted to make a mark before his departure. By any means necessary, as ultimately proves to be the case in this laconically captured psycho-drama.
