Romania, Germany, Finland

Directed by Radu Ciorniciuc
Written by Lina Vdovîi

For two decades, the Enache family – nine kids and their parents – lived in a shack in the wilderness of the Bucharest Delta, an abandoned water reservoir, one of the biggest urban natural reservations in the world, with lakes and hundreds of species of animals and rare plants. When the authorities decide to claim back this rare urban ecosystem, the Enache family is evicted and told to resettle in the city – a reality they know nothing about. Kids that used to spend their days in nature have to learn about city life, go to school instead of swimming in the lake, and swap their fishing rods for mobile phones. Their identity has been questioned and transformed, along with their sense of freedom and family ties.
