An apartment kitchen: a man and a woman discuss Little Red Riding Hood, their voices hushed, mindful of waking the little girl sleeping next room. Waste land on the city outskirts: behind a line of abandoned trailers, the man silently watches what seems to be a family. The same city, the same man: driving through traffic with two hand-made firing pins for a hunting rifle. The man is 42 years old, his name – Viorel. Troubled by obscure thoughts, he drives across the city to a destination known only to him. This is a part of Cristi Puiu's ‘Six stories from the outskirts of Bucharest’; a series of six intertwined but independent stories.
Cristi Puiu looked for the lead actor for five months, finally cast himself in the role and then passed the exams for a driving licence in order to play the character.
