Nelu works as a security guard in the local supermarket of a small town on the Romanian-Hungarian border. For Nelu, days go by the same: fishing at dawn, then work, and finally home with his wife. They live alone in an isolated farmhouse on the fields outside the town. Their problem these days is repairing the old roof of the farmhouse. One morning, Nelu will “fish” something different out of the river: a Turkish man trying to cross the border. The Turk gives Nelu all his money to help him cross the border. Nelu takes the money and promises he will help him cross the border the next day… Morgen…
