How far would you go for a friend?
Otilia and Gabita share a room in a student dormitory in the university of a small town in Romania, during the last years of communism. One afternoon, Otilia rents a room in a cheap hotel where she and Gabita are going to meet a certain Mr Bebe. Gabita is pregnant, abortion is illegal and neither of them have experienced anything like this before.
4 Months, 3 Weeks & 2 Days belongs to a larger project called Tales from the Golden Age – a history of communism in Romania told through its urban legends. 4 months, 3 weeks & 2 days is the first film of the series.
The project’s aim is to talk about that period with no direct reference to communism but only through a variety of stories focused on personal choices made in difficult circumstances.
