Effi is a peculiar girl. She lives with her grandmother, mother and brother in a small town in the north of Romania. Her father is a sporadic but desired presence. He comes and goes and appears at the most unusual moments. One morning he shows up unexpectedly and involves Effi in a project: building a man made of fireworks. But fireworks, although a delight to the eyes, fade away irrevocably.
