Not everything is as it seems for Cristi, a police inspector in Bucharest who plays both sides of the law. Embarking with the beautiful Gilda on a high-stakes heist, both will have to navigate the twists and turns of treachery and deception. A secret whistling language spoken on the Spanish island of LaGomera might just be what they need to pull it off. “Thrilling Romanian corrupt-cop noir” (Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian). “With all due respect to Lauren Bacall, there’s always been a bit more to whistling than putting your lips together and blowing.” (Jessica Kiang, Variety)
