Ilegitim

A seemingly trivial event – a joint dinner of the Anghelescou family. The family father Victor (Adrian Titieni) discusses about physics during a meal. At some point, the oldest son Cosma (Bogdan Albulescu) mentions that father’s name appeared on the list of people, who during the dictatorship period reported on women wanting to make an abortion. The mood changes rapidly. Victor defends himself by pointing out that he is in fact is against abortion, to which the twins Sasha (Alina Grigore) and Romi (Rob Urs) owe their lives to,  because the mother wanted to remove her pregnancy. Innocent meeting ends with a real family “earthquake”.
