Not everything is as it seems. At least not for Cristi, a police inspector playing on both sides of the law. He is sent to Gomera, in the Canary Islands, to learn the local whistling language. Welcomed by Gilda, a woman he is affectionate to, Cristi starts cracking the code the very next day. It is meant to help him communicate with mobsters and get Zsolt out of prison. Zsolt is the only one who knows where 30 million euros are hidden. An unpredictable, tense and highly comical game of crime begins. 

"This time, one of the pioneers of the Romanian New Wave whistles to a completely different tune. Boldly mixing film noir with comedy, thriller with drama, reality with film, Corneliu Porumboiu creates a show that everyone who loves cinema will enjoy." (Gediminas Kukta)
