Romania, 1967. Teenager Clovis Dorian travels from Bucharest to the remote village of Rusalca to visit his grandmother, but his winter school break turns into a living nightmare after a serendipitous liaison with a beautiful woman and a run-in with a sinister Communist Party apparatchik throw him into the Romanian underworld.

Part political thriller, part coming-of-age story, Mal d?Hiver is an elegant phantasmagoria of love and hatred, beauty and horror, offering a barefaced perspective on the struggle of the innocent to make sense of the brutality and injustice that typified the apex of communism in eastern Europe.
