Ilie (Iulian Postelnicu) is a policeman in a village where corruption is a way of life. Following a series of violent events that he witnesses and the tensions that build up, the man is forced to make important decisions in his work and personal life.
“Men of Deeds is a film about a man disconnected from reality, living in an ideal world of his own making. “I think that each of us has found ourselves in a similar situation at some point, but in the case of our “hero”, the contact with reality comes abruptly, violently and sometimes even comically”, says director Paul Negoescu.
