The action of the film called “Sieranevada” is placed three days after the attack from the premises of the Parisian tabloid Charlie Hebdo and forty days since the death of Lary’s father. The man is going to spend his Saturday at the commemoration of the dead. But the family reunion is not as expected: discussions are tensed and the contradictions quickly appear.

“Dogs”, Bogdan Mirica’s debut film, will also be screened at the “Anonimul” Festival in the presence of a part of the staff.
