Alina is a perfectly respectable citizen and employee of the year at the bank where she works. This, however, does not shield her from becoming the focus of an increasingly bizarre series of events set off by an unfortunate incident on the Bucharest metro: when her newly adopted dog throws up, the mishap is caught on camera and posted online by a teenager, and the video goes viral.
Depicting and targeting a whole spectrum of ills that commonly afflict the public and private spheres of our networked and hyperconnected society (cybershaming, the hunger for 15 minutes of fame or the appeal of kitsch on the news), this is a remarkable social satire managing to be both darkly merciless and endlessly hilarious.
