The film follows the story of Otilia Mihartescu (Anamaria Marinca) and Gabriela "Gabita" Dragut (Laura Vasiliu), two university friends in an unnamed Romanian town. The film is set in 1987,[3] one of the last years of the Ceausescu regime. When Gabita becomes pregnant, the two girls arrange a meeting with Mr. Bebe (Vlad Ivanov) in a hotel, where he is to perform an illegal  abortion(Communist Romania had anatalist policy against abortion).

4 months, 3 weeks & 2 days belongs to a larger project called: Tales from the Golden Age - a subjective history of communism in Romania told through its urban legends. The project's aim is to talk about that period with no direct reference to communism but only through different stories focused on personal options in a time of misfortunes that people had to live like normal times.

4 months, 3 weeks & 2 days won the Palme D' Or at Cannes Film Festival 2007.
