Radu works as a trainee at a prestigious French news network. Serving as a translator and general problem solver or "fixer" for the headlining journalists during his trial period, Radu is looking to make his big break. He sees his opportunity when two underage Romanian prostitutes are repatriated from France, creating an international scandal. Taking advantage of his language skills and local connections, Radu is prepared to do whatever it takes to interview one of the young girls. But as he ventures into tricky moral ground, he asks himself if, as an aspiring journalist, he can live with the consequences of his actions—and if, as a father, he's setting a good example for his son.

Radu est stagiaire pour une chaine d'information française. Interprète et entremetteur, il règle tout problème qu'ont les journalistes couvrant les gros titres. Radu est ambitieux et cherche à percer. Il en voit l'occasion quand sont rapatriées de France deux prostituées roumaines, ce qui provoque un scandale international. Tirant parti de ses connaissances linguistiques et de ses contacts locaux, Radu est prêt à tout pour interviewer l'une des jeunes femmes. Posant le pied sur un terrain glissant sur le plan éthique, il se demande si, en tant qu'aspirant journaliste, il peut assumer les conséquences de ses gestes.
