Film Description:

The film, inspired by real events, reveals a web of intrigues from the unseen world of politics, press and secret services, a world of corruption, of cynicism, of unscrupulousness… The young reporter Dinu, seemingly naive and inexperienced, is sent by his boss, the owner of a television trust, to resume the investigation into the old case of the CIA flying prisons, which is said to have landed also in Romania. Following some contradictory information, Dinu is caught in the middle of extremely hard conflicts between groups of former Intelligence Officers and Politicians. Coincidentally or not, Dinu is mysteriously looking for File 631, named after the purchase price of a kitchen hood buyed by a truthful politician, who discovers an incredible leak of information from a NATO base in Romania. The press event agitates, provokes, tempts different media, top politicians, secret services, both internal and external, causing hilarious dramas, but also absurd, and the fact itself becomes the main stake of the subsequent events. The explosive ending is a real examination of conscience for Dinu. He tries to maintain his professional dignity and finds duplicity, amoral volatility and the lack of measure of a world that relentlessly continues its course.
