A video goes viral. It shows a man and a woman having sex while wearing masks. The woman is, nevertheless, identified. Too bad she is a teacher and supposed to be a role model. Forced to meet the parents demanding her dismissal, the schoolteacher Emi refuses to surrender. In a (post-socialist but ultimately any), society her case is about to get lost in a social network discourse of squeaky-clean attitudes, pseudo-political knowing-it-all and sanctimonious chauvinism. The debate turns into a tribunal that raises a series of issues affecting Romania’s post-communist society.

"What is obscene? What is immoral? We are used to acts which are much obscener, in a way, than these small [sexual] acts. If society is so full of obscenity, then let’s face it: that video is not obscene anymore. This was my idea, to show that the one so-called obscenity in the porn video is nothing compared with what is around us. But we don’t pay attention to it. And cinema can help us to see things better." (Radu Jude)
