Category: Edition 1978

When the younger brother is in trouble, and the older one is just a plain, simple, working man that needs not trouble around his new family, any girl he meets in a cake-and-juice bar is good for a ride. To the last days of summer, at the seaside. Anda Onesa is the sweet, innocent bartender in a communist bar with cakes, beers, juices and soda. She has never seen the sea. Geo Costiniu is the non-compliant young man, who failed admission exams to college and worked afterwards in the factory. He is the type the regime did not bent yet - and whose own brother filed a complaint against, at the Militia, for a family financial matter. He's charming yet disorriented and insecure, with visions and nightmares. He invites Anda Onesa at the seaside, right after he meets her, on the back of his motorcycle to a last sunbath for this season. They seem to be so right for each other, yet Militia is getting closer and closer. He lets her go back to Bucharest by her own, almost chasing her away.
