Everything for Riana

Mihai Dragolea -Romania
2019 — Documentary — English subtitles — dragolea.mihai@yahoo.com

A young man sells Chinese “iPhones” on the streets of Italian cities and sleeps rough, while his infant baby in Romania is in desperate need of a heart operation – which costs money. This gut-wrenching film portrays that part of Europe’s population that has nothing but wants the same as those in the EU who seemingly have it all. This is an intimate portrait of a tale from the new Europe where borders are merely something to be crossed in the service of a higher purpose; the result being a thought-provoking film which deals with the lifelong consequences of the brashness of youth.
