Delia Fratila comes from a poor family living in a small Romanian town. Her fortunes change when she becomes the lucky winner of a luxury car through sending off bottle labels in an advertising competition. Delia and her parents arrive in Bucharest for the promotion testimonial – a nationwide video campaign depicting Delia’s success as an example of the drinks manufacturer granting happiness. After a long journey to Bucharest, the family finally arrives at the film location, where Delia spends the day shooting, a seemingly nondemanding task. All she needs to do is sit in the car, drink the product and thank the drinks company. Of course, any thing that could go wrong does go wrong and this is just the beginning of Delia’s woes.
