Radu est un journaliste roumain ambitieux, ancien traducteur de français, qui travaille à Bucarest pour l'Agence France-Presse. Il fait venir de Paris son ami Axel pour lui donner l'exclusivité d'un reportage à faire sur une jeune mineure roumaine de quatorze ans, prostituée de force à Paris, et qui vient d'être rapatriée en Roumanie dans un foyer d'accueil à Bistrița en Transylvanie.
