Mums reikėjo katastrofos, kad galėtume elgtis kaip normalūs žmonės.

Cornelia is 60 and fundamentally unhappy: her son, Barbu, 34, fights with all his might to become independent. He has moved out, has his own car, has a girlfriend who obviously doesn‘t meet Cornelia‘s standards and – most upsettingly – he avoids his mother as much as possible. When Cornelia finds out that Barbu was involved in a tragic accident, her motherly instincts take over and she uses all her skills, well-connected friends and money to save Barbu from jail.
