Synopsis

Péter, a big city cop, investigates a sex trafficking ring in Brasov. He has dedicated his life to finding women who have disappeared.

He sees his sister, Juli, in every girl he saves. Juli disappeared twenty-two years ago in their hometown, Valan, in the ensuing chaos of the Romanian Revolution of 1989.

Péter is obliged to return to Valan after receiving a phone call that implies the body of his sister has been found among the pines on a snow-capped mountain. The resulting investigation not only forces him to confront the stifling crime rate that has the town in a stronghold, but also takes him back to the labyrinth of the past where he must face his own demons.
