Two young Romanian women make money as models on an erotic video chat site. All while they try to lead normal family lives, get along with their parents, and raise children. This observational documentary captures exactly this - their private space. The filmmakers let them speak freely about not only their jobs, but also how they themselves see their lives. At the same time, they show how a publicly condemned profession influences people’s behavior and their view of the world. The film also presents dramatic generational differences in contemporary Romanian society in which the older generation, working in agriculture, wants their children to remain at home while the younger one seems to be moving coninously to the bigger cities, leaving behind their past.

"For a good documentary you have to go out and live among your characters." M. G. Dragolea


Mihai Gavril Dragolea (1989) and Radu Mocanu shot the feature length documentary Robotelul de aur (2015), which follows a young Romanian boxer during training sessions for the European championship and reveals his life story. Dragolea sees himself as a film nomad who wants to shoot documentaries with social impact focused on the lives of ordinary people.
