CHILD'S POSE - [POZITIA COPILULUI]
Detained by police after being involved in a fatal traffic accident, intoxicated thirty something Barbu (Bogdan Dumitrache) is bailed out by his mother, the formidable Cornelia (Luminița Gheorghiu, in a tour-de-force performance). Bursting onto the scene with her pal Olga (Natasa Raab) in tow, Cornelia takes charge of the situation, letting the cops know she is not to be trifled with. Over the coming days, Cornelia bullies and cajoles everyone involved in deciding her son's fate, but the impassive Barbu, increasingly resentful of her domination, realizes he has a say in the matter, too.
