4 Months, 3 Weeks & 2 Days

4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS & 2 DAYS Otilia and Gabita share the same room in a student dormitory. They are colleagues at the university in this small town in Romania during the last years of communism. Otilia rents a room in a cheap hotel. In the afternoon, they are going to meet a certain Mr. Bebe. Gabita is pregnant, abortion is illegal and neither of them have gone through anything like this before. 4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS & 2 DAYS belongs to a larger project called: Tales from the Golden Age– a subjective history of communism in Romania told through its urban legends. The project's aim is to talk about that period with no direct reference to communism but only through different stories focused on personal options in a time of misfortunes that people had to live like normal times. 4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS & 2 DAYS is the first film of the series.
