Private Project


It’s Adina’s Birthday and no one, except Matei, her very charming assistant doesn’t bother to make a big deal of it.

Even though she seems to have all - nice family, good career, Adina can’t avoid noticing that there is something missing in her life, that there is some sort of loneliness that she doesn’t necessarily enjoy, that there are some unsaid “what ifs” well hidden behind what’s said. Now that she’s over her 40s she can’t stop wondering if there might have been some decisions that she could make differently.

But today, on her Birthday, a small incident gets her the opportunity to check that unsaid “what if”.
