Musician Gabriel and dimpled dry-cleaning proprietress Gabriela live like two strangers who no longer see each other. But in humorous contrast to their staid, passionless lives, characters in a constant state of sexual arousal surround them. Their libidinous teen son, whose hilarious voiceover commentary intermittently provides important narrative information, prides himself on being the high school stud and aspires to a career in porn. Gabriela's sexy employee switches boyfriends the way she changes clothes. And despite being married, Gabriel's colleague is working his way through the female members of their orchestra. Ultimately, the two Gabys find their virtual affairs reconnect them with their own desires, but in a way less movie-fantasy and more satisfyingly real-life.Written by

Nice. Delicate. Naife. Slice of ordinary Romania or any East Europe country. A film like an onion bread. Or spring day. Traces of winter, seeds of summer. And mixture of nostalgia and hope. A movie about love and relationship. Small gestures, shadows of words, good intentions and discovery of life. Step by step. With innocence and resignations. The axis - a teenager for who the existence is only piece of clay to be molded. A story like a fragment from Tchekov universe. Or a song with humble lyrics. Nothing spectacular, nothing strong. Only a picture in a huge art gallery. And light of a spring day with soul of February. A woman, her husband, a boy, few words on chat, sketches of expectation and the truth as guillotine blade. In fact, white page in skin of pastel nuances.
