A murder mystery turned on its head – where the mystery’s not the culprit, but the motive. Inside a non-descript apartment, a man and woman discuss the inconsistencies in Little Red Riding Hood, their voices hushed, mindful of waking the little girl sleeping in the next room. Behind a line of abandoned trailers on the outskirts of Bucharest, the same man then waits for something or someone to arrive. Today he will carry out a plan that will bring order to his world.
