COMOARA (THE TREASURE)

Corneliu Porumboiu

1/3

Synopsis

In Bucharest, Costi is young and accomplished family man. At night he likes to read the adventures of Robin Hood to his six-year-old son to help him go to sleep.
One evening, his neighbour pays him an unexpected visit and shares a secret: there's treasure buried in his grandparents' garden, he's sure of it. If Costi will hire a metal detector and spend a day helping to help locate it, he'll share whatever they find. Skeptical at first, in the end Costi can't resist and gets dragged into the adventure.
