The River Behind
by Lucia Lupu
Moldova | 2019 | In development
One day, 800.000 people from Chișinău and nearby regions felt a strong smell of feces in the air. Sergiu Postica, a wedding entrepreneur, starts a quest to find the source of this suffocating perfume. It didn’t take him too long to find the wastewater treatment plant that’s throwing tons of chemicals into the river next to his house. The film will follow Sergiu’s war against ignorance and corruption, reviving the Moldovan’s long forgotten spirit of social responsibility.
