Cristi is a young Romanian gendarme who struggles to find the balance between two sides to his identity: a man working in a macho hierarchical environment and a closeted gay man trying to keep his personal life a secret. One day, he is called in to police a demonstration at a movie theatre where an ultra-nationalist, homophobic group has interrupted the screening of a queer film. After one of the protesters threatens to out him, Cristi spirals out of control.
