Plot
Papu Gherase, papu Giogi, papu Coli and papu Miciu, four old men from a remote village in south-east Romania, who sing polyphonic music according to a centuries-old tradition in their community, go on the road to give concerts and promote their first and only record, meditating on a happier past, a daunting present and a near death. Old age and ill-health are not the biggest problems on this road trip, as the four singers seem to have a great deal of humor when dealing with these matters; the biggest problem is that the singers are forgetting the songs that were taught to them by their fathers and grandfathers. An even bigger problem is that these songs will die out once they do, as there are no young people in their families or elsewhere that they can teach them to.

A road movie in space and time that, while going forward to the concerts, goes backwards in time through the stories in which the singers reminisce their past and compare it with a very different present, in the light of the final disappearance of their musical tradition along with their own
fading-out memory.
