A German and a Romanian filmmaker set on a road trip around Romania seeking to understand young people’s beliefs in the supernatural. On the route they encounter a superstar priest with clairvoyant powers, a young healer who cures blood cancer, a village haunted by ‘strigoi’, a yoga cult, a new political religion and the limits of reason. Revealing the struggles of making a first feature documentary, the audience can experience the filmmakers emotional rollercoaster from euphoria to the fear of failure. Modern Romania and its people, trapped between socio-political struggles and a world of ghosts and witches, portrayed with humour and partly animated.
