At the dinner table with his four grown-up children and their partners, widower Victor embraces his role as family patriarch. He commands the conversation until his son Cosma confronts him with the fact that historical documents indicate he denounced women wanting to flaunt the abortion ban in place until 1989. The mood of the family gathering abruptly shifts. Victor defends himself by pointing out that he is, after all, against abortion and that twins Sasha and Romi owe their very lives to this fact. Yet when Sasha announces she is pregnant soon afterwards, Victor's convictions are put to a true test and a heated family discussion follows which reveals just how little divides absolute truths, unwavering convictions and hypocrisy.
