A Cannes winner, Graduation is a powerful exploration of a parent’s life, duty and values becoming undone by some destructive life circumstances. Romeo, a physician living in a small Transylvanian mountain town, tries to “heal” his daughter’s damaged life and ensure her academic future by making shady deals and conflicted compromises. There are ways to success, but not by using the principles he, as a father, has taught his daughter.
