Cristina and Tudor Ionescu have built a happy family with their two children, Maria and Ilie. They live an idyllic life, in a nice apartment, in one of Bucharest’s best neighborhoods. One sunny Sunday morning, tragedy strikes when Maria disappears without a trace and the family is thrown into chaos as they struggle to deal with the unexpected and devastating loss. How can they move forward without the answers they need? A superb exploration of grief, enriched by Bogdan Dumitrache’s masterful performance, Constantin Popescu’s POROROCA stands proudly among the best films in Romania’s bold New Wave.
