4 Months, 3 Weeks & 2 Days
Cristian Mungiu's drama unfolds in Romania in the late '80s, during the last waning days of Communist rule. Otilia and Gabita, two female friends and students who share a Bucharest flat, soon find themselves saddled with an overwhelming problem: Gabita is expecting. With abortion illegal in Romania at that time, the women seek an illicit termination at the hands of one Mr. Bebe in a seedy Romanian hotel—but Bebe refuses to accept money in return for his services and demands a certain "alternate" commodity instead.
