Medalia de Onoare
Synopsis: 

Ion is seventy-five years old. His relationship with his wife Nina is compromised by her silence and indifference. His son Cornel still bears him a grudge because years ago he had denounced him to the police to prevent him from fleeing Communist Romania. One day, Ion receives a medal of honor from the Ministry of Defense for his heroic deeds during the Second World War. It seems to give his life a new meaning and convinces him that he can win back his family’s esteem.
